New CryoSat dataset with corrected mispointing angle for aberration of light available to users

25 May 2017

A new dataset is now available to CryoSat users which contains Star Tracker mispointing angles corrected for the aberration of light. This dataset is particularly important for those users who are processing the data in Swath Mode. It essentially has no major impact on other applications.

It is noted that corrected values of the mispointing angles corrected for the aberration of light will be incorporated in the next release of the ice products called Baseline D, planned to be released next year.

Users can download the Technical Note, which describes this dataset. The yearly datasets can be downloaded from the these links: 2011, 2012, and 2013. Each dataset is approximately 500MB.

The missing years will be added to the current datasets once they have been processed and shall become available on the datasets page.
