Update to Sentinel-3 SRAL Level-2P Wave product
The SRAL L2P Wave product from Sentinel-3A and -3B will be updated on 8 April 2021.
29 June 2021
17 March 2021
The update will consist of the inclusion of a new wind variable.
This new wind variable is computed with Gourrion (2002) algorithm using Collard (2005) table.
The algorithm is based on: Gourrion, J., D. Vandemark, S. Bailey, B. Chapron, G. P. Gommenginger, P. G. Challenor, and M. A. Srokosz, 2002. A two-parameter wind speed algorithm for Ku-Band altimeters, J. Atmos. and Oceanic Tech., 19, 2030-2048.
It uses the table provided by (in French): Collard, F., 2005, Algorithmes de vent et période moyenne des vagues JASON à base de réseaux de neurones, BO-021-CLS-0407-RF, Boost Technologies, 33pp.
For more information, see the Wave Along-track Level-2+ (L2P) page. The updated product handbook will be made available soon.
The SRAL L2P Wave product is processed by the Sentinel-3 L2P/L3 Marine Altimetry Service (CNES/CLS), in the frame of a EUMETSAT contract, part of the Copernicus Programme funded by the European Union.
This product is available in Near-Real Time and the service is operational.
