This dataset contains level 0, raw Interferometric Wide swath (IW) Single Look Complex (SLC) C-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data from the European Space Agency (ESA) Sentinel 1A satellite. Sentinel 1A was launched on 3rd April 2014 and provides continuous all-weather, day and night imaging radar data. The IW mode is the main operational mode. The IW mode supports single (HH or VV) and dual (HH+HV or VV+VH) polarisation. These data were archived as a test - CEDA does not regularly archive these products.

These data are available via CEDA to any registered CEDA user.

Citable as:  Copernicus; European Space Agency (2021): Sentinel 1A C-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR): Interferometric Wide (IW) mode Single Look Complex (SLC) Level 0 data. NERC EDS Centre for Environmental Data Analysis, date of citation.
