Applying the 1.6 Micrometer Nonlinearity Correction to AATSR GBT Products. This Technical Note describes the procedure to apply the nonlinearity correction to the 1.6 micrometer reflectances in AATSR GBT L1B products generated before 14 December 2004
IDEAS - Envisat AATSR Events Report. This document describes all major events that occurred during the full ENVISAT mission for the AATSR instrument. These include instrument housekeeping events and anomalies
Recent changes have been made to the AATSR Instrument Processing Facility (IPF) in order to improve the performance of the retrieval of Land Surface Temperature (LST), and of cloud clearing over land surfaces. The information in this document applies to Version 6.0 and later versions of the AATSR IPF.
The 34th AATSR QWG Meeting was held on 28th/29th March 2017 at RAL, Harwell, U.K. ThisMemorandum states the objectives of the Meeting, gives a selected highlight, and summarisesthe discussions that took place.
The SeaSat-A synthetic aperture radar imaging radar system (SAR) was the first imaging radar system used as a scientific instrument from Earth orbit. The system generated continuous radar imagery with a 100 km swath at a resolution of 25 m from an 800 km altitude orbit. The imagery is a pictorial representation of the radar backscatter of the Earth's surface in a map-like representation.
The purpose of this document is to provide a description of how to decode Envisat Level 0 ASAR data. In particular, the decoding steps for the Flexible Block Adaptive Quantisation (FBAQ) data reduction algorithm are described.
The aim of this document is to describe the changes that were made at the end of May 2009 to the ENVISAT ASAR alternating polarisation (AP) swaths characteristics. These changes were made to avoid unplanned shut-downs of the ASAR instrument that have occurred since launch when acquiring AP data.
