Starting from day 25 May 2011 for a period of one Envisat cycle (30 days), ASAR will acquire Wave data in the so-called "leap frog" mode.
An ECMWF model change will occur on 17 May around 12HUTC. The new model is named 37r2 and will impact the altimetry products generated by the F-PAC from 18 May onwards and the meteo grids delivered to the ESA Cryosat-2 Ground Segment.
Plots of the planned ERS-2 SAR acquisitions for the coming week are available.
