ESA Christmas / New Year holidays
The EO Help and Order Desk will be closed during the following periods / days:
19 December 2008
Thanks to its demonstrated capabilities, the Envisat ASAR instrument is now starting its contribution to
the different GMES projects.
A SCIAMACHY instrument decontamination is planned to take place during the coming weeks.
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.
The complete ERS ATSR-1 and ATSR-2 mission reprocessed to be aligned with the ENVISAT AATSR products (IPF v 6.1) is now available via FTP.
19 December 2008
Due to technical problems at the Beijing station, no ERS-2 High Rate (HR) data has been recorded since 7 December 2008. Operation will be resumed as soon as required hardware replacement has been performed. ERS-2 Low Rate (LR) data is being acquired nominally.
Access here the plots of the planned ERS-2 SAR acquisitions for the coming week.

Earth Observation Resources
The European Space Agency (ESA) announces an opportunity for the exploitation of the Cryosat-2 Mission products. The opportunity aims at promoting the use of Cryosat-2 data in combination with ESA Earth Observation (EO) and Third Party Mission (TPM) data.
The deadline for submission of proposal is 20 February 2009.
