The Level 1B wind product of the Aeolus mission contains the preliminary HLOS (horizontal line-of-sight) wind observations for Rayleigh and Mie ...
The Aeolus and ALOS dissemination systems will undergo maintenance on the morning of 31 July.
A software maintenance activity affecting the On-The-Fly (OTF) ESA data dissemination service infrastructure has been planned on 23 July 2020.
Aeolus’s telescope requires periodic collimation and refocussing. To this end, the Instrument Telescope Refocussing activity aims to improve the radiometric performance of the Atmospheric Laser Doppler Instrument (ALADIN)’s telescope by optimizing the throughput at the field stop, the smallest aperture where the return light has to pass. This is done through a change of the temperature settings on the telescope.

DOCUMENT - General Reference1 Mar 2019
The Living Planet Programme document (ESA SP-1227, available on this Library) describes the plans for the Agency's new strategy for Earth Observation in the post-2000 time frame. Out of the nine Earth Explorer Core Missions identified in 1996, four Core Missions were selected for Phase-A studies, which began in 1998, namely: the Gravity Field and Steady-State Ocean Circulation Mission; the Land-Surface Processes and Interaction Mission; the Earth Radiation Mission; and the Atmospheric Dynamics Mission. The 4 volumes forming this Special Publication describe in detail each single mission. Download
