  • This dataset collection contains land monitoring data from the Multispectral Instrument (MSI) on the European Space Agency (ESA) Sentinel 2B satellite. Sentinel 2B was launched on 7th March 2017 and provides sun-synchronous platform for the multispectral imaging data. The instrument uses 13 spectral bands from visible to the near infrared to obtain images with a swath width of 290km. Level 1C processing provides Top-Of-Atmosphere (TOA) reflectances in cartographic geometry. A further processing level, bottom-of-atmosphere (BOA) reflectance in cartographic geometry (prototype product) can be produced by the user with the Sentinel 2 toolbox. The BOA mode allows for the accurate assessment of biophysical parameters e.g. Leaf Area Index, with reduced cloud interference.

  • 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 collection contains land monitoring data from the Multispectral Instrument (MSI) on the European Space Agency (ESA) Sentinel 2A satellite. Sentinel 2A was launched on 23rd June 2015 and provides sun-synchronous platform for the multispectral imaging data. The instrument uses 13 spectral bands from visible to the near infrared to obtain images with a swath width of 290km. Level 1C processing provides Top-Of-Atmosphere (TOA) reflectances in cartographic geometry. A further processing level, bottom-of-atmosphere (BOA) reflectance in cartographic geometry (prototype product) can be produced by the user with the Sentinel 2 toolbox. The BOA mode allows for the accurate assessment of biophysical parameters e.g. Leaf Area Index, with reduced cloud interference.

  • This dataset collection contains data from the Sea and Land Surface Temperature Radiometer (SLSTR) on the European Space Agency (ESA) Sentinel 3A satellite. Sentinel 3A was launched on 16th February 2016 and provides data globally. 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.

  • Along-Track Scanning Radiometer (ATSR) mission was funded jointly by the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change External Link (DECC) and the Australian Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research External Link (DIISR). This dataset contains the Along-Track Scanning Radiometer on ESA ERS-1 satellite (ATSR-1) Browse Product. These data are 3 band colour composite, quick-look images at coarse resolution. The browse product for the ATSR-1 and the ATSR-2 missions were introduced during the third reprocessing of data products. This product was derived from the Level 1B product and auxiliary data.

  • Sentinel 5 Precursor (S5P) was launched on the 13th of October 2017 carrying the TROPOspheric Monitoring Instrument (TROPOMI). TROPOMI on the Sentinel 5 Precursor (S5P) satellite observes the CO global abundance exploiting clear-sky and cloudy-sky Earth radiance measurements in the 2.3 µm spectral range of the shortwave infrared (SWIR) part of the solar spectrum. TROPOMI clear sky observations provide CO total columns with sensitivity to the tropospheric boundary layer. For cloudy atmospheres, the column sensitivity changes according to the light path. Carbon monoxide (CO) is an important atmospheric trace gas for our understanding of tropospheric chemistry. In certain urban areas, it is a major atmospheric pollutant. The main sources of CO are the combustion of fossil fuels, biomass burning, and atmospheric oxidation of methane and other hydrocarbons. Whereas fossil fuel combustion is the main source of CO at Northern mid-latitudes, the oxidation of isoprene and biomass burning play an important role in the tropics.

  • Advanced Along-Track Scanning Radiometer (AATSR) mission was funded jointly by the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change External Link (DECC) and the Australian Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research External Link (DIISR). This dataset contains the Advanced Along-Track Scanning Radiometer (AATSR) on ESA ENVISAT satellite Three Band Colour Composite Browse Product. These data are 3 band colour composite, quick-look images at coarse resolution. This product has been derived from the Level 1B product and auxiliary data. The three bands are selected to best show the feature of the image, and it could vary between daylight time and night time. It also includes geolocation grid. The third reprocessing was done to implement updated algorithms, processors (the IPF Processor 6.05 from the IPF Processor 6.01), and auxiliary files.

  • Along-Track Scanning Radiometer (ATSR) mission was funded jointly by the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change External Link (DECC) and the Australian Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research External Link (DIISR). This dataset contains the Along-Track Scanning Radiometer on ESA ERS-2 satellite (ATSR-2) Gridded Brightness Temperature/Reflectance (GBTR) Product. These data are the Level 1B product that consists of Top of Atmosphere (TOA) radiance measurements and brightness temperatures at full resolution for both the nadir and forward views. The product was calibrated for instrumental and atmospheric effects and re-sampled to a fixed grid aligned to the sub-satellite track. This product were derived from the Level 0 product and auxiliary data, and serves as the input data for all Level 2 products. The third reprocessing was done to implement the updated algorithms, processors, and auxiliary files.

  • The Medium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MERIS) is one of the ten instruments on board the Envisat satellite launched on the 28th of February 2002 from Kourou (French Guyana) and operated by the European Space Agency (ESA). MERIS is a 68.5 deg field-of-view nadir-pointing imaging spectrometer which measures the solar radiation reflected by the Earth in 15 spectral bands (visible and near-infrared). It obtains a global coverage of the Earth in 3 days. Its main objective is to measure the sea colour and quantify the ocean chlorophyll content and sediment, thus providing information on the ocean carbon cycle and thermal regime. It is also used to derive the cloud top height, cloud optical thickness, aerosol and water vapour column. The ground spatial resolution of the instrument is 260 m x 290 m. Only reduced resolution data (1.04 km x 1.16 km) are archived at the NEODC. This dataset contains Level 2 retrieved parameters MERIS product.

  • Level 2 processing consolidated and reprocesses data from July 2002 to March 2004 from the Michelson Interferometer for Passive Atmospheric Sounding (MIPAS) instrument on the ENVISAT satellite operated by the European Space Agency (ESA).
