How To Access Data
Fast Registration with Immediate Access (Open)
- Go to the ESA User Services Portal
- Register or log in to EO Sign In
- Fill in and submit the form for accessing the data
- You will receive an email with your user name
- A second email will follow with your password to download the data from the erswsc-ftp-ds.eo.esa.int server via an FTP client (see Read More for connection details) or, alternatively, from command line using L-FTP.
The data can be downloaded via an FTP client (e.g., FileZilla or WinSCP) using the options "explicit FTP over TLS if available" or "Require explicit FTP over TLS".
Reprocessed Data: ERS-1 data is available from 1 August 1991 to 2 June 1996. ERS-2 data is available from 26 March 1996 to 4 July 2011.
See the ERS-WS Product availability table.

Should you need support to access the data, please contact EOHelp.
The ERS data reprocessed with the ASPS facility is also available in the UWI format to maintain the compatibility with the FD (Fast Delivery) products.
The ASPS UWI product is organised in frames of 500 x 500 km providing the radar backscattering sigma nought for the three beams of the instrument plus the wind speed and direction.
The wind retrieval is performed with the CMOD5N geophysical model function derived by ECMWF to compute the neutral winds rather than 10m winds.
ASPS UWI products are provided with a spatial resolution of 50 x 50 km and a grid spacing of 25 km. One product covers one orbit from ascending node crossing.
Please consult the Product Quality Readme file before using the ERS ASPS data.
