Envisat Altimetry Full Mission Reprocessing V3.0
05 July 2018
The ESA Envisat Altimetry Full Mission Reprocessing (FMR) has been completed with the generation of the V3.0 mission data set. This FMR follows the first Envisat Altimetry reprocessing Version (V2.1) completed in 2012. The GDR and S-GDR Level 2 data products have been reprocessed for all cycles from 6 to 113 (May 2002 to April 2012) into a homogeneous standard in NetCDF format (close to Sentinel-3).
The reprocessed Envisat Altimetry data is available to the user community via direct download from the ESA online archives. For new users access is provided through ESA Fast Registration.
Users already having access to Envisat Altimetry data can retrieve the details for the account via the "My Online data" area on the My Earthnet pages using their SSO credentials.
Please consult the "Envisat Altimetry Product Quality Readme file" before using the new data.
The previous Envisat Altimetry reprocessing Version (V2.1) will remain available on the same platform for the following 6 months.

For many aspects, the V3.0 reprocessed data are better than the previous dataset (V2.1):
