The ERS programme celebrated its 30th anniversary on 17 July. Today, we are still exploiting ERS data and experts continue to work on improving the altimeter, radiometer and SAR data the programme acquired.
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 2004 Envisat and ERS Symposium was held in Salzburg - Austria from 6 to 10 September 2004. The 2004 Envisat and ERS Symposium provided a forum for investigators to present results of ongoing research project activities and assess the development of applications and services.
In this document the analysis of the GOME thermal environment aboard ERS-2 during lifetime was updated to cover the period April 1995 - March 2002, for the pre-disperser prism, the radiator, the four charge amplifiers, the scan unit electronics and motor, the DDHU DC/DC converter and the DDHU Peltier board.
