ASAR Alternating Polarisation Medium-resolution Image (ENVISAT.ASA.APM_1P)

This data product is generated from Level 0 data collected when the instrument is in Alternating Polarisation Mode. The product has lower geometric resolution but higher radiometric resolution than ASA_APP and contains one or two co-registered images corresponding to one of the three polarisation combination submodes (HH and VV, HH and HV, VV and VH).

This product is processed using the SPECAN algorithm and contains radiometric resolution good enough for ice applications and covers a continuous area along the imaging swath.

Spatial Resolution: 150 m ground range x 150 m azimuth

Product Availability

On request production via FTP
Available from 14 November 2002 - 8 April 2012.

Access to the EOLI-SA catalogue for on-demand ordering is provided upon submission of a project proposal.
