The atlas is based on the climate datasets provided by the CM SAF. It consists of maps providing climatological information of different meteorological parameters. These include:
-general climatic characteristics of meteorological parameters over Europe and Latvia;
-information on satellite data suitable for climatological studies, particularly datasets provided by the CM SAF;
-an example of the strengths and weaknesses of satellite data for climate applications;
-instructions for creating a satellite climatology atlas and beginning to work with satellite datasets in general.
This tool should be used for viewing example data from different CM SAF climate datasets. The complete instructions provided here will enable users to create their own atlas with only minor additional support in processing or climatological theory.
Notes: The climate atlas is a tool to help visualise climate datasets for Europe and Latvia. It is also a guide for working with satellite data in climatology.
