Minimize Cryosat-2 Quality Control Reports

Data Unavailability

Information on all periods of planned and unplanned unavailability of SIRAL data is provided here.

Product Anomalies

This document provides an updated list of all known anomalies which have been opened and tracked on the CryoSat Instrument Processing Facility (IPF) and affect the quality of the distributed data products. In addition a list of all anomalies, which have now been resolved following the most recent IPF1 and IPF2 update, is also included

Daily Performance Reports

Daily Reports are aimed at providing CryoSat data users with a quick overview of the product quality of L1B and L2 data products.

Cyclic Performance Reports

Cyclic Reports reports are based on information pertaining to the operational and reprocessed CryoSat data products. The CryoSat Cyclic Reports are compiled to keep the CryoSat community informed of the overall mission performance and the status of the SIRAL instrument

MSSL Quality Monitoring

The MSSL QA Webpages provide the results of the CryoSat performance monitoring provided by MSSL/UCL on behalf of ESA.

Daily Quality Reports

Going beyond its ice-monitoring objective, CryoSat is also a valuable source of data for the oceanographic community. To enable their full scientific and operational exploitation, the CryoSat ocean products need to be thoroughly quality-controlled and validated. The CryoSat Quality-Control and Validation (QCV) Daily Reports aim at providing a quick overview of the quality of CryoSat Intermediate Ocean Products (IOP) and the Fast Delivery Marine (FDM) products. These products are made available online respectively ~3 days and ~3 hours after sensing and provide geophysical parameters that are useful to improve sea state and weather forecasts
