Following the release of the first operational Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich products in June 2021 and the start of dissemination of Radio Occultation NRT products in August 2021, the products below will be released on 29 November:
- High resolution Altimetry products (Level 1A, Level 1B and Level 2) in all publicly available timeliness
- Low resolution Altimetry products - Level 1B and Level 2 in NTC timeliness
- Advanced Microwave Radiometer - Level 2 products in NTC timeliness
- Radio Occultation - Level 1B products in NTC timelines
Note: Radio Occultation products are not Copernicus products.
Full details on the products are provided in the following Product Notices:
Note: Radio Occultation Level 2 NTC data will be released by the ROM SAF: https://www.romsaf.org/
The table below provides a list of these products, with links to our Product Navigator where more information on the products can be found (including example filenames). The table also indicates the distribution means and the daily volumes for each product.
(*) Note: The products will be available on the second EUMETCast Terrestrial service (TER-2). In order to receive them, users need to have installed the latest tellicast-client version (V2.14.7) for Windows or Linux. Users also need to enable and start the ter-2 instance on their reception station. More information on this is available in the manuals and README (Tellicast) files.
Warning: Sentinel-6A high resolution L1A products have very large daily volumes (see table above), and the stream on TER-2 can go up to 170Mbps. Users may experience poor reception performance if their last mile link capacity cannot cope with this increase in volume. This may also impact TER-1 (used to disseminate data other than Sentinel-6) if it is active on the same reception station.
Users wishing to access the Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich products listed in the table should register via our Earth Observation Portal (EOP)
For SFTP access, upon registration for this service via the EOP, access link and credentials will be provided via email.
