SCOOP Data Sets

The SCOOP project will evaluate the performance of two SAR mode (Delay Doppler) Altimeter Data sets.

The First SCOOP Test Data Set will be an “equivalent” of the Sentinel-3 SRAL Baseline SAR mode altimeter product, generated from Cryosat-2 L1B Baseline C data using the baseline Sentinel-3 SRAL SAR mode altimeter processing scheme.

The Second SCOOP Test Data Set will incorporate some modifications to the Sentinel-3 SRAL baseline processing scheme, intended to improve the performance in open ocean and coastal zone applications.

These Data Pages provide information on these and the altimeter and auxiliary data sets used in the SCOOP project, including:

  • The SCOOP L1B and L2 SAR mode (Delay Doppler) Test Data Sets: RDSAR, L1B and L2.
  • Input data (Cryosat-2 SAR FBR and S3 SRAL simulations) required for producing the SCOOP test data sets.
  • Auxiliary data required for processing the SCOOP Test Data Sets.
  • Satellite, In-situ and model data used for validating the SCOOP Test Data Sets.

Regions of Interest

The SCOOP team has identified 10 Regions of Interest (ROI) for which Test Data Sets will be produced and for which the performance of these data sets will be analysed. These are indicated below on the version of the Cryosat-2 Mode Map (v3.4), which was in operation over 2012-2013 (the period for most of this first test data set).
