Users of Envisat ASAR Alternating Polarisation mode data should be aware that from Monday 25th May 2009, the swath characteristics for swaths IS2 to IS7 are being changed. The main consequence of these changes is a reduction in the swath width.

From 18 May 2009 and during two consecutive cycles, Envisat will conduct an acquisition campaign aiming at
generating two Antarctica and Greenland coverages suitable for interferometric applications.
Starting from orbit 73131 (16 April 2009), the ERS-2 GOME level-1 off-line data products are being generated with the new GDP processor version 4.01. The switch to the GDP processor version 4.01 on the GOME Near Real Time (NRT) processing chain applies to all ERS-2 GOME NRT products generated as from orbit 73532 (14 May 2009).
Access here the plots of the planned ERS-2 SAR acquisitions for the coming week.
