Swarm Level 2 products released

01 July 2015

As announced at the IUGG General Assembly 2015, the first official Swarm core field models were released. In addition, the Swarm magnetospheric field model from the comprehensive inversion as well as the 1D model of mantle conductivity and 1D C-response maps were released.

Swarm GPSR update

01 July 2015

The GPSR settings on the Swarm C satellite were changed on 6 May 2015 in order to further improve the receiver performance:

  • The bandwidth of the L1-carrier loop was increased by 50%
  • The bandwidth of the L2-carrier and P(Y)-code loops was increased by 100%
  • The fast reacquisition of the L1-carrier tracking was enabled by increasing the retry counter from zero to five
  • The number of tracked GPS satellites required by the onboard Kalman filter for calculating a valid navigation solution was reduced from three to one

SMOS level 1 and 2 data products: Short period of degraded data

29 June 2015

ESA would like to inform SMOS data users about a short period of degradation in the level 1 and level 2 operational data set (OPER file class). The degradation was due to the presence of a strong Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) during the Noise Injection Radiometer (NIR) calibration executed on 3 June 2015 that has adversely impacted the computation of the calibration parameters.

Entire SMOS level 1 V620 dataset now available

29 June 2015

ESA would like to inform the SMOS data users that the level 1 catch-up reprocessing (see the previous news on SMOS V620 data reprocessing) has now been completed.

The entire Level 1 V620 data set is now available as REPR file class through the standard user interfaces and covers the period from 12 January 2010 to 9 May 2015.
