CryoSat scientific users are informed that the problem in the delivery of auxiliary data has been resolved.
The Swarm document on the thermo-optical properties of the satellites provides tables and technical drawings for aerodynamic and radiation pressure modelling. In the new revision, the absorptivity of the "Beta Cloth" and the "White Paint" were updated to more accurate values. Download version 2.1 of the document.
