Correct a bug on the QFlags related to snow/ice flagging.
Provide a more accurate identification of the vegetation and soil components, which reduces a positive bias of FVC and LAI values for South America and South Africa regions, and also improves the consistency with other satellite based products. A new condition is added to better identify pixels with residual snow over Europe.
Adapted to a new MSG system: 1) Product generated in a single region: MSG-Disk; 2) Distribution through EUMETCast in the 4 geographical regions: NAfr, SAfr, SAme, Euro.
1) Global attributes corrected; 2) The error computation has been reformulated, in order to increase the reliability of the error bars. The current formulation is provided in the SAF/LAND/UV/VEGA_PUM/2.1; 3) Areas with low quality inputs are not processed to guarantee the reliability of the product estimates.
