Details/Specifics of Change:M-B From January 13- 20, 2020, EUMETSAT plans to perform a decontamination of the Meteosat-11 (Prime satellite; 0M-BM-0 longitude) SEVIRI instrument.M-B Meteosat-11 data will be interrupted during this time period and Meteosat-9 back-up data, rectified to 0 degrees, will be disseminated to support the 0M-BM-0 mission.M-B Below is the Meteosat-11 (Met-11) SEVIRI decontamination procedure schedule from EUMETSAT:

NOAA/NESDIS plans to distribute only Met-9 data from the PDA system and GEODIST starting 1700 UTC, January 9, 2020.M-B At 1700 UTC, January 21, 2020, NOAA/NESDIS will switch back to the distribution of only Met-11 data from the PDA and GEODIST.M-B Importantly, to ensure accurate Meteosat data receipt during the overall procedure, users should have PDA subscriptions to both Met-9 and Met-11, with and without "PAR" in the filenames.M-B The temporary switch to Met-9 data distribution at NOAA/NESDIS should not impact McIDAS users unless your data processing precisely keys on "Meteosat-11" or SSID "354."


Please contact NOAA/NESDIS if you have any questions in preparation for data access from NOAA during the planned procedure.
