Daily Reports are aimed at providing CryoSat data users with a quick overview of the product quality of L1B and L2 data products.
FDM daily reports contain quality information about the Fast Delivery Marine (FDM) products, processed in Near Real Time ~3 hours after SIRAL acquisition with the CryoSat DORIS Preliminary Orbits.
NOP daily reports contain quality information about the Near Real Time Ocean Products (NOP), processed ~3 hours after acquisition with the CryoSat DORIS Preliminary Orbits.
IOP daily reports contain quality information about the Intermediate Ocean Products (IOP), processed ~3 days after acquisition with the CryoSat DORIS Preliminary Orbits. Since 06 November 2017, these reports contain information on the L1B, L2 and Pole-to-Pole (P2P) products.
GOP daily reports contain quality information about the Geophysical Ocean Products (GOP), processed ~30 days after acquisition with the CryoSat DORIS Precise Orbits. Since 06 November 2017 these reports contain information on the L1B, L2 and Pole-to-Pole (P2P) products.
OFL daily reports contain quality information about offline products from the CryoSat Ice Processor, processed ~30 days after acquisition with the CryoSat DORIS Precise Orbits. From June 2014 to April 2015 these reports also contain information on GOP.
Available reports for each day are accessible through the calendars presented below.
The reports use the following naming convention: CS_DR_XXX_YYYYMMDD
XXX = Data used (FDM, NOP, IOP, OFL or GOP)

RUS upcoming webinar on Ocean Colour Monitoring with Sentinel-3
15 February 2018
The Copernicus Research and User Support (RUS) team would like announce an upcoming webinar on Ocean Colour Monitoring with Sentinel-3.
Please register now to the live webinar which is taking place on Wednesday 21 February 2018 from 14.30 to 16:00 CET.
This webinar will illustrate:
- how to access the RUS Service
- how to download, process, analyse and visualise the free data acquired by the Sentinel-3 Ocean and Land Colour Instrument (OLCI)
- the methodology for the detection and mapping of phytoplankton blooms, using ESA's SNAP Sentinel-3 Toolbox
To replay previous webinars, or to subscribe to the RUS training newsletter for any information on forthcoming webinars and events, please visit the RUS training platform website.
The reports provided here are based on information pertaining to the operational and reprocessed CryoSat data products. The CryoSat Cyclic Reports are compiled to keep the CryoSat community informed of the overall mission performance and the status of the SIRAL instrument. The report is based on a 30-day reporting period, which has been defined by UCL/MSSL since the Transfer to Operations, as part of the routine QA monitoring activity.
The reports use the following naming convention: CS_CR_XX_YYYYMMDD_yyyymmdd_VV
XX = Cycle number (where "C" denotes cycles from the Commissioning Phase)
YYYYMMDD = Start of reporting period covered by the report
yyyymmdd = End of reporting period covered by the report
VV = report version

Cape Town faces Day Zero
The beautiful Western Cape region in South Africa is naturally water-scarce. The historic dry spell, that started back in 2014, is now leaving water levels dangerously low.
The city of Cape Town, that is fed by water from six dams in and around the city, is imposing water restrictions to its citizens and visiting tourists. And measures are likely to become harder as Day Zero (currently expected in April) draws nearer.
Day Zero marks the day when dams fall below 13.5% capacity, so low that water taps to residential areas will be turned off and replaced by controlled water distribution at checkpoints.
These 100 m Proba-V images, comparing November 2014 with March 2017, clearly highlight the dramatic fall in water levels at three of the Big Six dams: Theewaterskloofdam (southern part of circle) and Brandvleidam & Kwaggaskloofdam that formed one impoundment in 2014, as the dividing ‘wall' between them was submerged. sports.
