This document describes the work packages, and focusses on the newer results obtained in the second half of phase A of ESRIN contract No. 18809/05-I-LG. This work is focussing on the SCIAMACHY instrument aboard Envisat.
A new GOME Level 1b dataset has been generated for the 16-year mission period bringing relevant quality improvements for the revised calibration approach, compensating aging and instrument degradation, and provide enhanced accessibility.
The Copernicus programme is based on a fleet of European Earth observation satellites, built and operated by ESA, member states and commercial entities. Copernicus will also offer data from non-European satellites.
The Atmospheric Toolbox (previously known as BEAT) is a collection of executable tools and API, developed to facilitate the utilisation, viewing and processing of e.g. GOMOS, MIPAS, SCIAMACHY and GOME data.
This Technical Note (TN) is the third volume in the trilogy of the SCIAMACHY Operation Concept TNs describing the basic knowledge about SCIAMACHY operations planning. It served prior to launch as input to the development of the ENVISAT ground segment, in particular to those systems that are required for mission planning and timelining.
