Frames shifted in May 1996 ERS-1 SAR data

06 February 1997

The data acquired in May 1996 by the ERS-1 sensor presents an anomaly: the image data is shifted by about 6.5 Km in azimuth compared with the nominal expected frame (while the latitude/longitude annotated in the product corresponds to the nominal expected frame). The anomaly can be partially compensated by the ESA/ESRIN ERS service. If necessary and behind specific request re-processing of data could be comtemplated. In turn new orders will be processed directly with a compensation method. Please note that only RAW, PRI, SLC and SLC-I products can be accepted for that timespan. For information the orbits concerned are 25203 to 25479. For ascending satellite passes the shift takes place northwards while for descending passes it occurs southwards. For more details do not hesistate to contact EOHELP.

Applications of ERS data by subject

01 February 1997

Why can ERS SAR provide information on tropical agriculture and deforestation even when the skies are very often cloudy? How is ERS data used in the management of the Coastal Zone? How can high precision ERS SAR assist in the task of compiling and updating maps? In what ways do ERS data contribute to forecasting of marine risks such as high winds and waves, and nowca sting of sea ice? How can ERS help to assess risks and aid response to natural disasters?

Special Acquisition Planning

22 January 1997

The Antarctic summer campaign of the German O'Higgins station will start on 27 January 1997 and will last until 20 March 1997, acquiring ERS-2 SAR data for almost two 35-day cycles.

A new GOME product level 2 has been made available both in CD-ROM media and over FTP.

08 January 1997

Orders and/or file transfers can take place for data sensed from July through October 1996. The product labelled LVL21 covers one month of data and replaces the originally foreseen LVL22 product. For more information please contact EOHELP.

29 November 1996

Harmonisation of SAR Products postponed to end of January previously foreseen for early December the new SLCI products and further harmonised SAR products will only become available end of January 1996.

Temporary change of LUT value for ERS-2 Fast Deliver and BUFR Altimeter products

22 November 1996

This is to inform you that the Look-Up Table (LUT) change originally planned to be implemented on November 25th 1996 in the ERS-2 Ground Segment has been prematurily performed on 22/11/96. As an impact the altimetric range increases by 40.9 cm. This ONLY affects the first 2 Kiruna orbits as the previous LUT configuration has been set back again as soon as possible the same day. The change can be identified in the URA product at the SPH level. The modified LUT is TAU-G-REF LUT (SPH: field number: 9). Past ID was 10001, the new one (for the first 2 Kiruna orbits) being 10006. Please note that the same LUT change will permanently be implemented on November the 25th 1996.
