blue arrow DESCRIPTION

The ASAR Alternating Polarization Mode Level 0 (Co-polar and Cross-polar H and V) products contain time-ordered Annotated Instrument Source Packets (AISPs) corresponding to one of the three possible polarisation combinations: HH & HV, VV & VH and HH & VV, respectively. The echo samples in the AISPs have been compressed to 4 bits/sample using FBAQ. This is a high-rate, narrow swath mode, so data is only acquired for partial orbit segments. There are two co-registered images per acquisition and may be from one of seven different image swaths. The Level 0 product was produced systematically for all data acquired within this mode. Data Size: 56-100 km across track x 100 km along track

There are three AP Mode Level 0 products:

  •  ASA_APH_0P: The Cross-polar H Level 0 product corresponds to the polarisation combination HH/HV.
  • ASA_APV_0P: The Cross-polar V Level 0 product corresponds to the polarisation combination VV/VH.
  • ASA_APC_0P: The Co-polar Level 0 product corresponds to the polarisation combination HH/VV= H and H received/V transmit and V received.

blue arrow HOW TO ACCESS THIS DATA

Data is available on the ESA Online Dissemination System upon Request Evaluation

The products are available for download via the ESA ERS and Envisat (A)SAR dedicated Online Dissemination Service

The ESA (A)SAR On-the-fly (OTF) data processing and dissemination service allows end-users to gain direct access to the (A)SAR archive from the ERS-1, ERS-2 and Envisat Missions. The data is collection based and allows data browse and download through the treeview as well as via geographical catalogue search based on area of interest and metadata. Interferometric search option is available for relevant collections. Data download is available via HTTPS, including bulk download functionality.
