[Sentinel-3A] New version of Non-Time-Critical Sentinel-3A L2P products

AVISO News of the Jason-2 Altimeter - Fri, 2017-11-17 01:49
These products are processed by the Sentinel-3 L2P/L3 Marine Altimetry Service (CNES/CLS), in the frame of a EUMETSAT contract, funded by the European Union.  The new version 02_00 is disseminated by AVISO+ via ftp or AVISO+ CNES Data Center (see the product sheet) and it will also be disseminated by EUMETSAT (via EUMETCast,  EUMETSAT Data Centre and potentially via CODA). Note that the last cycle produced in version 01_00 has already been delivered (cycle 22). The next cycle 23 will be produced only in version 02_00.  With this new version:
  • the input data are the “spring 2017 reprocessed” version of input NTC L2 products fully detailed in the EUMETSAT S3A STM reprocessing technical note
  • the standards are the same as in 01_00 version
  • new cycles are available (cycles 5 to 11)

Dissemination of incorrect Jason-2 IGDR products (cycles 507 to 512)

AVISO News of the Jason-2 Altimeter - Thu, 2017-11-16 02:14
Due to a wrong processing configuration, Jason-2 IGDR cycles 507 to 512 are incorrect (datation bias of over 2ms, same anomaly as for cycles 505-506). These products have been deleted from avisoftp.cnes.fr server and must be discarded. The IGDR processing configuration anomaly has been identified. Jason-2 IGDR reprocessing is ongoing. Nevertheless, these products need validation before any dissemination. We expect to be back to nominal by the middle of next week.  We apologize for the inconvenience

Water Action Day at COP23 : Niger Basin Authority (NBA) collects & disseminates satellite data

AVISO News of the Jason-2 Altimeter - Wed, 2017-11-15 02:46
The Niger basin (4.200 km) encompasses 2,2 billions km² with very active phenomena, over nine countries (Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroun, Ivory Coast, Guinea, Mali, Niger, Nigeria and Chad). An authority to manage the basin was created The region has currently major security problems, leading to difficulties to maintain an in situ network. Satellites thus complement the existing network, and the Niger Basin Authority (NBA) is now disseminating satellite data over the basin. The next step will be to also use altimetry, including SWOT in the future. see http://sath.abn.ne/
