AATSR L2P/L3U products (ENVISAT.UPA-L2P-/UPA-L3U)
The L2P product contains full resolution dual-view Sea Surface Temperature (SST) values. These SST use the ARC SST retrieval and cloud screening which differ from the methods used to produce the Gridded Surface Temperature (ATS_NR__2P) products. In addition to SST, the L2P products contain the ATSR Saharan Dust Index (ASDI) and the clear-sky probability estimated by the ARC cloud detection algorithm.
The L2P processor also generates L3U products; these are the L2P products averaged onto a regular grid at 0.1 degree resolution (they are therefore similar to the AR / Meteo Envisat-format products).
The L2P and L3U products are provided in NetCDF-4 format following GHRSST Data Specifications (GDS) v2.
The L2P/L3U archive has been reprocessed with a new processor based upon the ARC SST; the changes are outlined in full in the L2P Reprocessing User Note.

ESA Earth Observation Campaigns Data
ESA has been involved in many Earth Observation campaigns over the past 25 years, from ground-based surveys, to ships at sea, aircraft and balloons in the atmosphere and the orbiting satellites in space.
