The new SLSTR L1 processing baseline 2.29 will bring following changes:

  • New cloud detection based on Bayesian and probabilistic method, including new variables to store Bayesian probabilities
  • Incremental improvements in classical cloudmask processing
  • Small improvement in geometric calibration of oblique view
  • Various bug fixes
  • Increment in product filename baseline collection from 002 to 003

The new SLSTR L2 processing baseline 2.33 will bring following changes:

  • Updated Sensor Specific Error Statistic (SSES) and Quality Level (QL) scheme in response to Bayesian cloud probabilities being available in the SLSTR L1 product.
  • Added new Bayesian cloud probability fields from SLSTR L1 for nadir and oblique view
  • Increment in product filename baseline collection from 002 to 003

Product Notices:
Sentinel-3A Product Notice – SLSTR Level-1B
Sentinel-3A Product Notice – SLSTR Level-2 Sea Surface Temperature

See Figure 1 for an example of the improvement of the new Bayesian cloud screening.
