  • The European Space Agency's Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) instruments have been flown on board ERS-1, ERS-2 and the Advanced SAR (ASAR) on board Envisat. The ERS-1, ERS-2 and Envisat satellites, launched in 1991, 1995 and 2002 respectively, are ESA multi-payload, Earth observation satellites. This dataset contains Synthetic Aperture Radar(SAR) data from the European Remote Sensing satellites ERS-1. The ERS-1 mission began in 1991 and ended in 2000, and ERS-2 and Envisat are still ongoing. SAR provides high resolution images, ocean wave spectra data and wind direction vector data. They are available through the NEODC to UK based students only.

  • This dataset contains observational frequency maps of internal waves (IW) within the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) region. The maps were generated by automatic processing of the ENVISAT Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar (ASAR) data archive covering the period from 2006 to 2012. The IW frequency maps were combined with bathymetry and mixed layer depth modelling data to estimate the interaction of IWs with the sea bed. The results are presented in monthly, seasonal, annual and climatology maps.

  • This dataset collection contains radar data from the C-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) on the European Space Agency (ESA) Sentinel 1B satellite. Sentinel 1B was launched on 25th April 2016 and provides continuous all-weather, day and night imaging radar data. Three acquisition modes are available: Stripmap (SM), Interferometric Wide swath (IW), and Extra Wide swath (EW). The main operational mode is IW. The EW mode is primarily used for wide area coastal monitoring. The SM mode is only used on special request for extraordinary events such as emergency management. The SM, IW and EW modes are available in single (HH or VV) and dual (HH+HV or VV+VH) polarisation. The C-band Synthetic Aperture Radar images the Earth with enhanced frequency and revisit times obtaining full Earth coverage every two weeks. Timeliness and reliability is optimized for emergency response and operational applications with Europes’s coastal zones and shipping routes being monitored on a daily basis. The data has a wide range of scientific applications including sea-ice monitoring, imaging of forests and investigation into the carbon cycle, and the analysis of earthquakes. Data are provided by the European Space Agency (ESA) and are made available via CEDA to any registered scientific user in the UK.

  • This dataset contains level 1b (L1B-S) 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 are fully SAR-processed and calibrated High-Resolution (HR) complex echoes arranged in stacks after slant range correction and prior to echo multi-look (multi-look processing reduces noise by averaging of adjacent pixels, and thereby reduces the standard deviation of the noise level). The L1B-S HR product contains information from Doppler beams data. Hence, it has only been defined for the Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) processing chain. The Doppler beams associated with a given surface location (also called stack data) are formed through the selection of all the beams that illuminate a given surface location, and that contribute to each L1B HR waveform. Beams are the result of applying Doppler processing to the waveform bursts, which allows division of the conventional altimeter footprint into a certain number of stripes, thus creating a Delay Doppler Map (DDM). With this, contributions coming from different stripes can be identified and collected separately. When all the contributions from different bursts are collected, a stack is formed. The stack waveforms are provided in In-phase (I) and Quadrature-phase (I/Q) samples (complex waveforms) in the frequency domain. Apart from the Doppler processing, the beams of a stack have also been fully calibrated and range aligned. The L1B-S also includes characterisation parameters about the stack itself. The time tag is given at each surface location (defined throughout the L1 processing chain). Data are provided by ESA and are made available via CEDA to any registered user.

  • This dataset contains Interferometric Wide swath (IW) Ground Range Detected (GRD) High Resolution (HR) 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 are available via CEDA to any registered scientific user in the UK.

  • This dataset contains level-2 Interferometric Wide swath (IW) Ocean (OCN) C-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data from the European Space Agency (ESA) Sentinel 1B satellite. Level-2 data consists of geolocated geophysical products derived from Level-1. Sentinel 1B was launched on 25th April 2016 and provides continuous all-weather, day and night imaging radar data. The IW mode is the main operational mode. These level 2 OCN products provide Ocean Wind field (OWI) and Surface Radial Velocity (RVL). The OWI component is a ground range gridded estimate of the surface wind speed and direction at 10 m above the surface, derived from IW mode. The OWI component contains a set of wind vectors for each processed Level-1 input product. The norm is the wind speed in m/s and the argument is wind direction in degrees (meteorological convention = clockwise direction from where the wind blows with respect to the North). The spatial resolution of the SAR wind speed is 1km for IW mode. The RVL surface radial velocity component is a ground range gridded difference between the measured Level-2 Doppler grid and the Level-1 calculated geometrical Doppler. The RVL component provides continuity of the ASAR Doppler grid. The RVL estimates are produced on a ground-range grid. These data are available via CEDA to any registered CEDA user.
