LRM Ice Baseline E reprocessed data released

10 Feb 2022

An issue on the LRM waveform scaled power introduced at Baseline D, affecting the computation of backscatter, has been resolved with the transfer to operation of the new Ice Baseline E processors on 20 September 2021.

As part of the Baseline E reprocessing activity we are prioritising the reprocessing of LRM data between 28 April 2019 and 21 August 2021 where only Baseline D data is available at the moment. By doing so, it will be possible for scientists to at least have coherent backscatter observations for the entire CryoSat mission period combining Baseline C and Baseline E data.

We are progressively releasing the reprocessed Baseline E LRM products in sets of three months. Data for the period 28 April 2019 - 31 October 2019 are already available on the CryoSat Science Server.
