The purpose of this document is to provide users with information on quality and classification (i.e. cloud and surface) flags contained within (A)ATSR Level 1B and Level 2 products generated by the 3rd (A)ATSR Reprocessing, and within (A)ATSR Level 1B products generated by the 4th (A)ATSR Reprocessing.
This memorandum documents the results of the systematic and visual Quality Control (QC) checks that were performed, by the (A)ATSR IDEAS+ QC team, on the ATSR (ATSR-1 and ATSR-2 only, Envisat product format) v3.0.1 Reprocessing dataset.
This User Note gives a basic characterisation of the pick-up noise evident in some ATSR-1 products, and explains if using this data affects sea surface temperature (SST) values generated from the brightness temperature measurements
The main focus of the (A)ATSR 4th reprocessing is to harmonise the (A)ATSR data product format with that of the follow-on instrument, SLSTR. This Memorandum provides basic information on this format and the products. A comprehensive User Document will be issued alongside the 4th reprocessing products. It is anticipated that the 4th reprocessing AATSR L1B dataset will be available in 2017/18, with the ATSR-1/-2 datasets to follow.
This README file contains important information about the (A)ATSR dataset. It has four main sections:
(2) Guide to (A)ATSR versions
(3) Segregated data details
(4) Removed data listing

This document describes the generation of the new MERIS/ATSR land/water, inland water, coastline and intertidal mask at 300m resolution in S3 format. The work is conducted in the framework of IDEAS+ CCN WP3540.
The scope of this paper is to provide an overview of the different ERS-2 piloting modes and to assess their impact on the platform attitude, the SAR Doppler stability, the product quality and the applications performance, particularly for interferometry.
