MERIS MER_FRS_2P is a Full-Resolution Geophysical Product for Ocean, Land and Atmosphere. The product is also specific to Water Leaving Radiance (Reflectance).
Each MERIS Level 2 geophysical product is derived from a MERIS Level 1b product and auxiliary parameter files specific to the MERIS Level 2 processing and distributed following the floating scene concept.
The auxiliary data include: Surface identification flags included in the level 1b and science/quality flags for the L2 parameters, Orbit state vector, Time correlation parameters, Latitude, Longitude, altitude and topographic corrections, Sun azimuth, Sun elevation, view azimuth, view elevation, Mean Sea Level pressure, Total column ozone, Total column water vapour, Wind speed.
The Level 2 FRS product covers the complete instrument swath. The product duration is not fixed and it can span up to the time interval of the input Level 0/Level 1. Thus the estimated size of the Level 2 FRS is dependent on the start/stop time of the acquired segment.
