  • Along-Track Scanning Radiometer (AATSR) mission was funded jointly by the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change External Link (DECC) and the Australian Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research External Link (DIISR). This dataset contains the Along-Track Scanning Radiometer on ESA ERS-2 satellite (ATSR-2) L3U product. These data were introduced product in the third reprocessing of (A)ATSR multimission data. These data were produced by the new ARC L2P processor version 1.2 that also produced the new L2P data. The L3U product was produced through averaging the L2P data onto a regular grid at 30 arcminute resolution. Hence, the L3U product is similar to the AST/METEO product.

  • This dataset contains land surface temperatures (LSTs) and their uncertainty estimates from the Along-Track Scanning Radiometer (ATSR-2) on European Remote-sensing Satellite 2 (ERS-2). Satellite land surface temperatures are skin temperatures, which means, for example, the temperature of the ground surface in bare soil areas, the temperature of the canopy over forests, and a mix of the soil and leaf temperature over sparse vegetation. The skin temperature is an important variable when considering surface fluxes of, for instance, heat and water. Daytime and nighttime temperatures are provided in separate files corresponding to the morning and evening ERS-2 equator crossing times which are 10:30 and 22:30 local solar time. Per pixel uncertainty estimates are given in two forms, first, an estimate of the total uncertainty for the pixel and second, a breakdown of the uncertainty into components by correlation length. Also provided in the files, on a per pixel basis, are the observation time, the satellite viewing and solar geometry angles, a quality flag, and land cover class. The dataset coverage is near global over the land surface. Small regions were not covered due to downlinking constraints (most noticeably a track extending southwards across central Asia through India – further details can be found on the ATSR project webpages at http://www.atsr.rl.ac.uk/dataproducts/availability/coverage/atsr-2/index.shtml. LSTs are provided on a global equal angle grid at a resolution of 0.01° longitude and 0.01° latitude. ATSR-2 achieves full Earth coverage in 3 days so the daily files have gaps where the surface is not covered by the satellite swath on that day. Furthermore, LSTs are not produced where clouds are present since under these circumstances the IR radiometer observes the cloud top which is usually much colder than the surface. Dataset coverage starts on 1st August 1995 and ends on 22nd June 2003. There are two gaps of several months in the dataset: no data were acquired from ATSR-2 between 23 December 1995 and 30 June 1996 due to a scan mirror anomaly; and the ERS-2 gyro failed in January 2001, data quality was less good between 17th Jan 2001 and 5th July 2001 and are not used in this dataset. There are minor interruptions (1-2 days) during satellite/instrument maintenance periods. The dataset was produced by the University of Leicester (UoL) and LSTs were retrieved using the (UoL) LST retrieval algorithm and data were processed in the UoL processing chain. The dataset was produced as part of the ESA Land Surface Temperature Climate Change Initiative which strives to improve satellite datasets to Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) standards.

  • The AAST L3S Combined Surface Temperature (CST) products here primarily provide data on surface temperatures in the Arctic, across all Arctic surfaces, and their associated uncertainties. This dataset consists of CSTs with uncertainty estimates produced from the ATSR-2 and AATSR instruments on ESA's ERS-2 and Enivsat satellite respectively. The CSTs in this dataset are surface temperatures across ocean, snow/ice and land surfaces in the Arctic region, where the Arctic is defined as the area at, or north of, 60°N. Please note, the data here provide daily temperature data, not daily mean data as indicated by the dataset title. For more information see the paper linked under the details tab The data were produced for ATSR Satellite Dataset project, which was funded by The UK Dept. for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy. Ice (and snow) Surface Temperatures (ISTs) and Land Surface Temperatures (LSTs) used to produce this dataset are sourced from the GlobTemperature Level 2 LST V2.1 product. Sea Surface Temperature (SSTs) are from the ATSR SST L2P V3.0 product. This version of the CST dataset is v2.1, with an earlier version previously provided via the GlobTemperature data portal. ATSR data was sourced from the GlobTemperature data portal and the CEDA archive. It consists of a complete set of CST and accompanying auxiliary (AUX) datafiles for the ATSR-2 and AATSR instruments separately. ATSR-2 data are available for 01/08/1995 - 22/06/2003 while AATSR data are available for 20/05/2002 – 08/04/2012.

  • The Cloud_cci ATSR2-AATSRv3 dataset (covering 1995-2012) was generated within the Cloud_cci project, which was funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) as part of the ESA Climate Change Initiative (CCI) programme (Contract No.: 4000109870/13/I-NB). This dataset is one of the 6 datasets generated in Cloud_cci; all of them being based on passive-imager satellite measurements. This dataset is based on measurements from the ATSR2 and AATSR instruments (onboard the ERS2 and ENVISAT satellites) and contains a variety of cloud properties which were derived employing the Community Cloud retrieval for Climate (CC4CL; Sus et al., 2018; McGarragh et al., 2018) retrieval framework. The core cloud properties contained in the Cloud_cci ATSR2-AATSRv3 dataset are cloud mask/fraction, cloud phase, cloud top pressure/height/temperature, cloud optical thickness, cloud effective radius and cloud liquid/ice water path. Spectral cloud albedo is also included as experimental product. The cloud properties are available at different processing levels: This particular dataset contains Level-3C (monthly averages and histograms) data, while Level-3U (globally gridded, unaveraged data fields) is also available as a separate dataset. Pixel-based uncertainty estimates come along with all properties and have been propagated into the Level-3C data. The data in this dataset are a subset of the ATSR2-AATSR L3C / L3U cloud products version 3.0 dataset produced by the ESA Cloud_cci project available from https://dx.doi.org/10.5676/DWD/ESA_Cloud_cci/ATSR2-AATSR/V003.
