Sentinel-3 OLCI L1 PB v3.02 implements a new Processing Baseline strategy and makes the Baseline number available in:

  • NetCDF data files, as a new global attribute.
  • Manifest file, as a new field.

The new OLCI L1 Processing Baseline has the following format: OL__L1_.xxx.yy.zz
where
xxx : baseline collection
yy : minor changes in IPF or in static ADF (starting from zero for a new baseline collection)
zz: changes in L0 or processing parametrization which are not expected to affect the quality of the products.

The Processing Baseline version for the new v3.02 is OL__L1_.002.22.00

PB v3.02 also fixes a minor issue of geolocation interpolation in OLCI pixels near the poles.
