Sentinel-3B Corrected Sea Surface Heights products will be distributed on EUMETCast from 14 February, extending the service from Sentinel-3A.
Thursday, 07 February 2019
The products, called L2P SLA in short, are 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.
They are mono-mission products containing along-track corrected sea surface heights with respect to a mean sea surface, corrections and geophysical parameters. The last versions of altimetric standards are used and there is a homogenized format for all satellites. The product format is netCDF.
The products have operational status and are available in Near-Real Time (NRT) (Corrected Sea Surface Height in NRT — Sentinel-3 ) and Short-Time Critical (STC) (Corrected Sea Surface Height in STC — Sentinel-3 ) timeliness.
They will be distributed on EUMETCast Europe:
