The information provided in this page is applicable to the latest Altimetry v2.1 dataset (RA2 and MWR), available to users via Fast Registration.

 

RA2MWR Level 2 data available

Two different product types were generated during the last reprocessing campaign:

  • GDR (Geophisical Data Record): containing radar range and orbital altitude, wind speed, wave height, water vapour from the MWR and geophysical corrections. This product is a continuation of ERS RA data.
  • SGDR (Sensor and Geophysical Data Record): which includes RA-2 geophysical data (as for GDR), MWR data, RA-2 averaged waveforms (18Hz) and RA-2 individual waveforms (1800Hz). This product is a continuation of ERS RA data.
