Layer Mean Virtual Temperature, Metop 2: 12-24 Z

Disclaimer
Currently, no good retrievals are being made from the ATOVS using the METOP-A (METOP-2) data due to the degradation of AMSU-A instrument data quality. However, the AMSU-A channel radiances (Brightness Temperatures) included in the ATOVS data file are not affected. The quality of the ATOVS Sounding products has decreased below specification. It is recommended that users should use the available sounding products with caution. We are investigating the problem and a decision will be made whether to terminate the affected ATOVS sounding products based on an upcoming assessment.

There are two time periods available for each group of data:
• Time period 1 covers from 00z to 12z of the current day.
• Time period 2 covers from 12z to 24z of the current day.

Note: There are 15 layers of mean virtual temperature measured from 7-10 mb to 850-1000 mb.
