ATOVS Products Termination
All the Advanced TIROS Operational Vertical Sounder (ATOVS) systems and data products are scheduled to be terminated at the end of this 2022 calendar year. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns regarding this ATOVS termination.

Metop-A IASI Termination
The IASI instrument on Metop-A (M2) ended operations early October 15, 2021. IASI data and products from Metop-A will no longer update. This is the first step in the planned retirement of the Metop-A satellite on November 15, 2021.

IASI products from other Metop satellites are unaffected.



POES Temperature and Moisture Soundings Profiles

The POES Temperature and Moisture Soundings Profiles are displayed in Skew-T Log-P diagram format. These diagrams include both the POES and the first guess (model data). Also included are several derived parameters to the right of each diagram. The POES thermal gradient winds (derived from the Soundings) are also displayed on the diagrams. The background image is generated from the AVHRR composite. Please select an area of interest from the regional map below.
