Abstract

This dataset contains ocean and land colour imagery data from the Ocean and Land Colour Instrument (OLCI) aboard the European Space Agency (ESA) Sentinel 3A Satellite. Sentinel 3A was launched on the 16th February 2016. Data are provided by ESA and are made available via CEDA to any registered user. The OLCI radiometer images using 21 spectral bands ranging from 400nm to 1020nm. The Full Resolution (EFR) data is calibrated, geo-located and spatially re-sampled Top Of Atmosphere (TOA) radiance for all 21 OLCI spectral bands. For the normal orbit of Sentinel 3A the OLCI instrument provides a spatial resolution of 300m.
