New Sentinel-3B SST Processing Baseline released soon

A new Processing Baseline (PB), v1.40, for the Sentinel-3 SLSTR-B SST products, is planned to be released on 28 May.

Thursday, 14 May 2020

Daily averaged SST from SLSTR-A and SLSTR-B, 11 May 2020

The update is required due to the Cold Finger Temperature increase carried out on SLSTR-B on 30 March 2020.

The only change to the PB is a new SLSTR-B Sensor Specific Error Statistics (SSES) Auxiliary Data File (ADF), which will once again harmonise SLSTR-B to SLSTR-A.

The SSES may be further refined over time, as additional knowledge of the new configuration is gained.

The baseline collection of the SLSTR L2 SST products remains the same (003). Sea surface temperature users should ensure they always apply the SSES to minimise the impact of the change, more information can be found in the SLSTR L2 Product Notices on the Sea Surface Temperature Services page.
