H SAF

The "EUMETSAT Satellite Application Facility on Support to Operational Hydrology and Water Management (H SAF)" was established by the EUMETSAT Council on 3 July 2005, and kicked-off on 16 September 2005, as part of the EUMETSAT SAF Network. The main objective of H SAF is to provide new satellite-derived products from existing and future satellites with sufficient time and space resolution to satisfy the needs of operational hydrology.

In the framework of the H SAF project several soil moisture products, with different timeliness (e.g. NRT, offline, data records), spatial resolution, format (e.g. time series, swath orbit geometry) or the representation of the water content in various soil layers (e.g. surface, root-zone), are generated on a regular basis and distributed to users. A list of all available soil moisture products, as well as other H SAF products (such as precipitation or snow) can be looked up on the H SAF website.
