This page provides some ingestion routines written in ANSI C and IDL that can be used to read the L1b and L2 CryoSat products.
The routines have been kindly provided by UCL/MSSL. Any problems and bugs shall be reported to the EO Helpdesk.
More detailed documentation and examples are contained in the *.tgz archive. Any new updates to the software and to the documentation will be posted on this page.
Version 2.2 of the tool corrects an issue with reading Level 2 GDR products and expands utility functions for users.
Version 2.1 of the tool added the ability to read the Baseline B and C CryoSat products.
Note on release 1.1: this release adds support for 64 bit machines and fixes a problem with the variable uj_Quality_F being defined incorrectly as 16-bit rather than 32-bit. Also, some variable names were slightly altered so that they reflect the type of variable.
