    CryoSat L2 Prototype Input & Output Definition Document

    The CryoSat Instrument Processing Facility (IPF) processes LO SIRAL data to level 2. The Processing chains to process the LOdata to L1b are called the IPF 1. The processors which convert Llb data to Level 2 are called the IPF2. This document defines the main external data interfaces for the IPF2 activity.
