Delayed availability of Envisat catalogue data

10 November 2010

The availability of Envisat catalogue data for products acquired after 02 November 2010 is delayed due to an anomaly found in validating the catalogue configuration files compatible with the new Envisat orbit. The problem is being investigated and information will be posted on line as soon as the new scenario has been implemented.
