Starting on 21 September 2009, progressively at all centres across the Envisat ground segment, a new version of the MERIS (FR and RR) and AATSR processor [05.05L05 and 06.02L02 respectively] will be used to generate Near-Real Time (NRT) and off-line products.

The European Space Agency is organising its third SAR oceanography workshop, SEASAR 2010, entitled "Advances in SAR Oceanography from ENVISAT, ERS and ESA third party missions", which will be hosted at ESA ESRIN in Frascati, Italy, from 25 to 29 January 2010.
20 October 2009 - 21 October 2009
The aim of the workshop - held under the auspices of the Swedish
