NEW SERVICE - SARVATORE -  ON DEMAND PROCESSING OF CRYOSAT DATA WITH SAMOSA MODEL

A new CryoSat-2 processing service, SARvatore is now available on the G-POD platform (https://gpod.eo.esa.int/).

SARvatore - SAR Versatile Altimetric Toolkit for Ocean Research & Exploitation, provides on demand and on line processing of CryoSat-2 SAR FBR data, with many processing options to select from, generating output of SAR L2 geophysical data products in NetCDF format.

To experiment with SARvatore  register for an EO-SSO user account (https://earth.esa.int/web/guest/general-registration) and then contact G-POD team (at eo-gpod@esa.int ) to request that they activate the service for you.

More information on the SARvatore processing scheme is available here

GENERAL INFORMATION

A Technical Note is available providing general guidelines for SAR (Delay-Doppler) L1b Processing. A  Configuration Control Document describes the different configurations used by the CP4O project partners when retracking CryoSat-2 SAR data.

CP4O Validation Data sets

The Validation Data Sets can be accessed via links in the summary table below. The Validation Data Sets will be assessed within CP4O in WP5000 (Impact Assessment), but the objective is also to make these data sets openly available for  others to access and evaluate.

Further detail on the validation data sets, information on contents and how to access the data will be provided in D4.4: The Updated Data Set User Manual.

For ftp access to files listed below login as guest to ftp.satoc.eu and go to cp4o/validation_data directory. Password on request to info at satoc.eu
