ASAR Image Mode Precision Image
(1995) recent views
Last update: 2 August 2016
This is a multi-look, ground range, digital image generated from Level 0 data collected when the instrument is in Image Mode (7 possible swaths HH or VV polarisation). The product includes slant range to ground range correction. It is for users wishing to perform applications-oriented analysis and applies to multi-temporal imaging and to derive backscattering coefficients.
The stand-alone image is generated using the Range/Doppler algorithm. The processing uses up to date (at time of processing) auxiliary parameters corrected for antenna elevation gain, and range spreading loss. Engineering corrections and relative calibration are applied to compensate for well-understood sources of system variability. Absolute calibration parameters, when available (depending on external calibration activities) are provided in the product annotations.
This product provides a continuation of the ERS-SAR_PRI product.
Spatial Resolution: 30 m ground range x 30 m azimuth
