This dataset contains level 1a altimetry data from the Synthetic Aperture Radar Altimeter (SRAL) aboard the European Space Agency (ESA) Sentinel 3A Satellite. Sentinel 3A was launched on the 16th of February 2016. These data contain geo-located bursts of echoes with all calibrations applied. The L1A is an intermediate output of the Synthetic Aperture Rader (SAR) processor. L1A complex waveforms should be fully calibrated (including both instrumental gains and calibration corrections) and aligned in range within each burst. The time tag is given at the surface (that is when the middle of the burst reaches the surface). L1A is the starting point for the SAR processing which provides high-resolution products. Data are provided by ESA and are made available via CEDA to any registered user.
