Following major development activities, which caused data access unavailability over the last months, ESA has now made all of its archived data from the PALSAR instrument available again. The new ground segment architecture allows for faster data access, as data requested by the user will be provided out of the archive and processed "on the fly". No more manual intervention for processing will be necessary on ESA's side. WB1 PALSAR data will become available in the next months.
