All cloud masks from ATSR instruments (ATSR-1/2/ and AATSR) are optimised for ocean use; therefore, it is necessary that improvements are made in the instruments before the scheme can be applied for land (Simpson et al.
"We produced a combined AATSR sea surface temperature and cloud top temperature image, which shows the sea surface temperature to be as high as 29*C in the area," remarked Carsten Brockmann of Brockmann Consult, a German company processing both MERIS and AATSR hurricane imagery.
AATSR information can be correlated with MERIS data cloud height and development to gain a good estimate of the hurricane's precipitation potential, and improve understanding of how this relates to its overall intensity.
"The AATSR satellite will be vital in picking up the sea temperature changes.
The observations were generated using data from the ATSR (Along Track Scanning Radiometer) series including ATSR-2 (1995-2003) and the Advanced ATSR (AATSR) (2002-12), extended with MetOp-A AVHRR (2007-17).
Soon after, ESA's GLOBCARBON project integrated efforts from different workstations and the acquired knowledge from GLOBSCAR to provide BA datasets from 2000 to 2007, generated from the same ATSR-2, AATSR, and MERIS sensors on the Envisat platform in addition to the VGT instrument [12].

Because the passive imagers (e.g., CERES, MODIS, AIRS, GEWEX-SRB, AATSR) provide complete coverage over the poles, these data are provided in the ArORIS product.
