    The data was original designed as a fast delivery Meteo product for use by meteorological offices, and contains averaged BT and SST at 10 arc minute resolution.

    The single MDS comprises the fields of MDS#3 (SST record, 10 arc min cell) of the AST product, with the addition of Average Brightness Temperature (ABT) fields (BT/TOA sea record, 10 arc min cell) to make it more self-contained.

    This product is a continuation of ERS ATSR data.

    The 3rd reprocessing of AATSR data has been performed; the processing updates that have been put in place and the expected scientific improvements are outlined in full in the User Note for the Third Envisat AATSR Reprocessing.
