Where is Envisat?
Envisat flies in a sun-synchronous polar orbit of about 800-km altitude. The repeat cycle of the reference orbit is 35 days, and for most sensors, being wide swath, it provides a complete coverage of the globe within one to three days.

Duacs, the Ssalto multimission altimeter data processing system, creates maps that show the variation in Sea Level Anomalies on a global scale.
Global Coverage Quicklooks
As part of the operational delivery of Envisat data to users, the quicklooks are combined from the catalogue system to build global coverage maps. The tool uses rigorous rectification methods, building mosaics on-the-fly, and can process 200 quicklooks per request.
