Reprocessing of Level 2 consolidated products version SGP 5.02 with incorrect file size and measurement coverage.


114 SCIAMACHY Level 2 consolidated products were found affected by incorrect processing triggered by a hardware failure of the processing platform occurred between 25 December 2011 and 02 January 2012.

A subset of Level 2 data version 5.02, generated during those days from both the Fast Delivery and the Off-line processing chains, resulted of reduced file size, as the processed measurement data sets were not correctly enclosed in the final Level 2 products.

No quality impact on the retrieved parameters has been identified.

The anomalous Level 2 consolidated products (Off-line processing) were removed from the D-PAC FTP server and replaced with a correctively reprocessed data set.
