Poseidon-4 Level 2 Altimetry Low Resolution in NRT - Sentinel-6

Abstract:
The product contains the typical altimetry measurements, like the altimeter range, the sea surface height, the wind speed, significant wave height and all required geophysical corrections and related flags derived from LR. Two measurement data files are available (standard and reduced), each with a different number of variables. The standard data file includes 1 Hz and 20 Hz measurements for the Ku- and C-bands as well as geophysical corrections at 1 Hz and some at 20 Hz. The reduced data file contains only 1 Hz measurements for the Ku- and C-bands as well as geophysical corrections at 1 Hz. Processed in NRT (< 3 hours).
