The scope of this document is to present the new SPTR2000 correction as the result of the different improvements to the Scanning Point Target Response Range Correction Algorithm. A very brief description is given on the main new algorithm concepts with particular highlights on the differences with the old version. The results are presented together with some elements of the validation performed within ESRIN. Information is also provided regarding the operational new SPTR correction file available to the users.
The purpose of this document is to help users identify the various types of data that are available from the ENVISAT, ERS-1 and ERS-2 Earth observing satellites, the kind of applications that the data may be used for and, importantly, the practical procedures required for access - including user registration and then search, selection and retrieval or ordering of the data of interest.
The purpose of this document is to define the guidelines to be followed for the formatting of the ENVISAT-1 Products, in order to get a consistent set of Payload Data Segment products, in terms of format, throughout the whole ENVISAT-1 mission.
The document is a brief guide for users to the ENVISAT 2nd generation Radar Altimeter (RA-2) and Microwave Radiometer (MWR) engineering (Level 1B) and geophysical (Level 2) Products Algorithms. Its immediate purpose is to convey basic information to users. The RA-2/MWR Product Handbook, which is now being drafted, will contain full details of the information needed by the users to exploit the RA-2/MWR data products.
The aim of this document is to present the results of the mission performance analysis performed at CLS on REAPER products. The final goal of this activity is to validate the REAPER processing scheme before performing a full reprocessing of altimeter data for the ERS-1 and ERS-2 missions.
The ENVISAT Calibration and Validation Plan defines the activities that will calibrate ENVISAT instruments validate its data products, particularly the Level 2 (L2) geophysical products, derived from the ESA developed instruments (EDIs). Detailed information on these instruments is available from the ENVISAT web pageshttp://www.envisat.esa.int/
The Dragon Programme focuses on science and applications development in P.R. China exploiting mainly data from ESA ERS and Envisat missions. This brochure describes the programme, projects and partners.
