ESA Cryosat Level-2 Product

Abstract:
ESA Cryosat Fast Delivery Marine Mode (FDM) product for the benefit of meteorology and oceanography is produced from Low Rate Mode (LRM) data only and is run as soon as possibly after acquisition using the DORIS Navigator orbit. The frequency of FDM data records is approximately one per second. The FDM Measurement Dataset has a single format as it is only ever produced from SIRAL LRM data. Product parameters are grouped according to function into 5 logical sub-structures as follows: -Location Group time and orbit location; -Range Group range and retracker results; -Range Corrections Group derived from auxiliary data or models; -SWH and Backscatter Group parameters relating to SWH and sigma0; -Geophysical Group MSS, Geoid, Tides etc from external data.
