OLCI L1 Processing Baseline 2.76A/1.54B (OL1 v06.11) introduces processor changes that do not have immediate impact on OLCI Level-1B products. However, the changes will allow EUMETSAT to improve the detection and processing of OLCI instrument anomalies when they occur in future.

OLCI L2 Baseline Collection 3.01 (OL2 v.07.01) includes two small processing changes which allow:

  • retrieval of the Total Suspended Matter product from 100 up to 400 g/m3;
  • reduced anomalous flagging of coastlines by the CLOUD_AMBIGUOUS flag in Full Resolution products.

Product notices for OLCI L1 and L2 and an updated L2 Collection 3 Validation Report will be available soon.
