Minimize CryoSat Roll Campaigns data in support to altimetric swath processing

Geoid elevations (m) and CryoSat ground track positions (red) corresponding to roll campaigns from November 2010 to October 2016


Since the beginning of the mission, CryoSat has executed several roll campaigns during which it has been rolled left and right to calibrate the interferometric baseline of its altimeter. The SARIN data, acquired during the seven roll campaigns, have now been publicly released to all users. The table contains FBR/L1b and L2/L2i products as well as the associated kml/png files.

These products represent a unique opportunity to perform innovative swath processing prior the launch of the SWOT Mission. ESA highly encourages the scientific community to use this dataset and provide feedback and recommendations for future roll campaigns. In particular, in support of new developments in swath processing over both the ocean and hydrology surfaces.

Contact points for feedback and recommendations:
CryoSat Mission Manager or the EO Help Desk
