PDHS-K (KIRUNA) NRT operations

9 December 2008

Following the anomaly impacting the Envisat Near Real Time (NRT) services during the last weekend, the NRT operations were resumed in the evening 8 December 2008.
Data recovery is still ongoing and will be completed as soon as possible.

MERIS Spectral Calibration Campaign

9 December 2008

Due to a MERIS Spectral Calibration Campaign, orbits 35488 to 35490 (inclusive) of 13 December 2008, will require specific instrument programming preventing nominal data processing. As a consequence, the corresponding products will be unavailable.

New AATSR L2P product available (UPA-L2P-ATS_NR_2P)

11 December 2008

The L2P product contains dual-view Sea Surface Temperature (SST) values, equivalent to the valid SST dual-view field in the Gridded Surface Temperature (ATS_NR__2P) products. Additional datasets are provided containing the dual-nadir difference, and other auxiliary information. Currently only Near Real Time (NRT) data is available, while generation of consolidated data from the archive is foreseen but not yet operational.

NEST (Next ESA SAR Toolbox) first release v.1-C now available

NEST is a completely new ESA toolbox with an integrated viewer for reading, calibration, post-processing and analysis of ESA and 3rd party SAR data starting from Level 1. Distributed as fully open source, NEST allows users to easily develop new readers and post-processors for SAR data by means of an Application Programming Interface (API).
