Description

This ASAR Wave Mode product is created by inverting the cross-spectra computed from inter-look processing of the SLC wave imagettes to derive the directional ocean product ocean wave spectra. Auxiliary ADSs included with the product remains the same as for the ASAR Wave Mode Cross-Spectra product.

The output follows the format of the Envisat ASAR Level 1B Wave Mode Imagette Cross-Spectra (ASA_WVS_1P) product. This is done in order to be compatible with the ground segment products of Envisat ASAR.

This product provides a continuation of the ERS-SAR wave mode data.

Output: Wavelength range from 20 to 1000 m in 24 logarithmic steps
