Abstract

This dataset contains Radiances and Brightness Temperature data from the Sea and Land Surface Temperature Radiometer (SLSTR) aboard the European Space Agency (ESA) Sentinel 3A Satellite. Sentinel 3A was launched on the 16th February 2016.

The primary mission objective of the SLSTR instrument is to extend the long-term consistent set of global Sea Surface Temperature (SST) measurements. In addition, SLSTR using a suite of visible and infrared radiance measurements provides land surface temperature, active fire monitoring, ice surface temperature, cloud, atmospheric aerosol, land surface, forestry and hydrology products in support of Copernicus services. Data are provided by ESA and are made available via CEDA to any registered user.

Title
Level 1 processing algorithm applied to Sentinel 3 Sea and Land Surface Temperature Radiometer (SLSTR) raw data
Abstract
This computation involves the Level 1 processing algorithm applied to raw Sea and Land Surface Temperature Radiometer (SLSTR) data. Level 1 processing uses Level-0 products to compute radiometric measurements for each SLSTR channel in both views. This includes radiometric calibration for thermal and solar channels, several tests concerning surface and cloud flagging, and the determination of pixels' properties such as day/night, position in the instrument grid or geographical position.
