This document specifies the interface through which files of data related to the Global Activity Plan (GAP), stored in the ESRIN ERS Central Facility (EECF), are transmitted to the external entities. The EECF systems involved in this data exchange are the Interface Subset (ISS), responsible for telecommunication aspects and preprocessing, and the Central User Service (CUS), where the GAP resides.
This document defines the ground processing algorithms for the ERS-1 AMI wind mode (Scatterometer) from the sigma nought triplets to the wind speed and direction, including the wind retrieval and the ambiguity removal processing.
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.
ESA's Earth Observation Science for Society programme aims to promote scientific exploitation of satellite data, forges new scientific discoveries and pioneers new services, stimulating downstream industrial and economic growth.
The Forestry Thematic Exploitation Platform (Forestry TEP) enables users in the forestry sector to access satellite data based processing services and tools for generating value-added forest information products.
