ALOS PALSAR OTF dissemination - Maintenance on 17 June 2019

14 June 2019

Due to a planned software maintenance activity, the On-The-Fly (OTF) ALOS PALSAR data dissemination service will be unavailable on Monday 17 June 2019, from 09:00 to 13:00 CEST.

Geoid elevations (m) and CryoSat ground track positions (red) corresponding to roll campaigns from November 2010 to October 2016


Since the beginning of the mission, CryoSat has executed several roll campaigns during which it has been rolled left and right to calibrate the interferometric baseline of its altimeter. The SARIN data, acquired during the seven roll campaigns, have now been publicly released to all users. The table contains FBR/L1b and L2/L2i products as well as the associated kml/png files.

These products represent a unique opportunity to perform innovative swath processing prior the launch of the SWOT Mission. ESA highly encourages the scientific community to use this dataset and provide feedback and recommendations for future roll campaigns. In particular, in support of new developments in swath processing over both the ocean and hydrology surfaces.

Contact points for feedback and recommendations:
CryoSat Mission Manager or the EO Help Desk

East Bali, Indonesia

14 June 2019

Web Content Image

The Copernicus Sentinel-2 mission takes us over the island of Bali, one of the 27 provinces of Indonesia.

Indonesia has more volcanoes than any other country in the world, owing to its position on the Pacific Ring of Fire. The islands of Java, Lombok, Sumbawa and Bali lie over a subduction zone where the Indo-Australian plate slides under the Eurasian plate, creating frequent seismic activity.  

Dotted with clouds, Mount Seraya is visible on the peninsula that juts to the east. Its volcanic rock creates a rugged terrain, but is surrounded by lush vegetation. The area is well known for its many Hindu temples, including the famous Lempuyang Temple, known locally as Pura Luhur Lempuyang.

The central volcano, which is a predominant feature in this image, is called Mount Agung or Gunung Agung, meaning ‘Great Mountain'. The symmetrical and conical stratovolcano is the highest in Bali, standing at over 3000 m. When it erupted in 1964, it was one of the largest eruptions of the 20th century, claiming over 1000 lives and leaving more than 80 000 people homeless.

After being dormant over the following 50 years, Agung reawakened in November 2017. Fortunately, small earthquakes warned authorities in time for 100 000 people to be evacuated to safety. Agung still remains very active, with frequent small eruptions spewing ash and lava, causing flights to be cancelled.

In this image, a bright orange spot can be seen in the volcano's crater. Recent research provides evidence that Agung and its neighbouring Batur volcano, visible northwest of Agung, may have a connected magma plumbing system.

Mount Batur, or Gunung Batur, has an unusual shape, with the volcanic cone visible in the centre of two concentric calderas.

Copernicus Sentinel-2 is a two-satellite mission. Each satellite carries a high-resolution camera that images Earth's surface in 13 spectral bands. The mission is mostly used to track changes in the way land is being used and to monitor the health of our vegetation.

Upcoming Meetings

  • ESA's 2019 Living Planet Symposium, 13-17 May, 2019, Milan, Italy

 

Swarm is the fifth Earth Explorer mission approved in ESA's Living Planet Programme, and was successfully launched on 22 November 2013.

As part of the Third Party Missions programme, the e-POP instrument of the Canadian Space Agency's CASSIOPE mission joined the constellation in February 2018.

The research objectives of the Swarm mission is to provide the best-ever survey of the geomagnetic field and its temporal evolution as well as the electric field in the atmosphere using a constellation of 3 identical satellites carrying sophisticated magnetometers and electric field instruments.

 

 

 

The orbital velocity of the Swarm A and C satellites is equal to 7.6 km/s and X km/s for Swarm B.

MAGx_HR Product

The MAGX_HR_1B Product contains magnetic vector data at 50 Hz rate. The time instants of the data are determined by the VFM instrument samplings. No interpolation of the magnetic data is performed, neither to shift the measurements in time nor to fill any gaps in the VFM source data. The measurement data set record of the MAGX_HR_1B Product is described in Table 2. See also Mag-H Data Set Record, MDR_MAG_HR.

t Time, UTC
r Position of VFM sensor, ITRF, spherical coordinates (r, θ, φ)
BVFM Magnetic field vector, VFM frame
BNEC Magnetic field vector, NEC frame.

Note: this is set to zero if no attitude information is available (Flagsq = 255)

dBSun Sun induced stray magnetic field correction vector subtracted from measurements, VFM frame (implemented from Product Baseline 04).
dBAOCS AOCS magneto-torquer stray magnetic field correction vector subtracted from measurements, VFM frame.
dBother Stray magnetic field correction vector of all other sources subtracted from measurements, VFM frame.
Berror Error estimate on magnetic field vector, VFM frame.

Accounts for errors of commissioning including:

  • Instrument noise
  • Uncertainties in instrument calibration and characterisation
  • Uncertainties in corrections of stray fields from spacecraft

For further details please consult SW-TN-DTU-GS-016

qNEC←CRF Rotation from NEC to Common Reference Frame (CRF)
Atterror Error estimate on attitude information.

 

Includes effects such as number of STR camera heads supplying attitude information, possible discrepancies in provided attitude information from several heads, lack of STR attitude information (i.e. the attitude used for computing BNEC is obtained by interpolation over longer arcs of S/C motion), etc.

FlagsB Flags related to the magnetic field vector measurement
Flagsq Flags related to the attitude data
FlagsPlatform Flags related to the S/C platform – Bus and AOCS telemetry, position accuracy
