CryoSat Ocean GOP production begins

12 December 2017

CryoSat scientific users are informed that the Ocean Baseline C GOP production has started and products are already available on the Science Server.

While the L1b products have passed all quality checks, we have detected a sporadic mishap on some of the L2 whose datation is set to Default Value in the middle of the product. This is causing some corresponding failures in the P2P production.

The decision to release the GOP was made in order to avoid delays on the corresponding Ice product processing. Gaps and affected products shall be replaced with a dedicated reprocessing activity in the next future.
