The LTDR V5 forward production will be switched from the AVHRR instrument onboard N19 to the same from MetOp-B, in a month, and this will be followed up by a re-processing of all the LTDR records from the beginning of the MetOp-B mission, in V5. (click here for the details)

V5 and V4 LTDR data now available. V3 LTDR has been decommissioned
