SARINvatore for CS-2
SARINvatore (SARIN Versatile Altimetric TOolkit for Research and Exploitation) for CryoSat-2 is a Software Processor Prototype developed by ESA/ESRIN (REF1) to experiment with SARin processing from L1A (FBR) to L2 using the SAMOSA retracking model. It can be used over open ocean or coastal zones, as well as over more difficult targets such as rivers, lakes, and sea-ice. This toolkit is made available to the user community as EarthConsoleTM P-PRO Service. The toolkit takes in input Cryosat-2 SARin FBR data products and produces in output geophysical L2 products in standard NetCDF format. This output can be manipulated and visualized with BRAT (the Broadview Altimetry Radar Toolbox).
EarthConsole® P-PRO SARINvatore for CRYOSAT-2 Software Prototype User Manual
The P-PRO SARINvatore (SARIN Versatile Altimetric TOolkit for Research and Exploitation) for CryoSat-2 service is a web platform that provides the capability to experiment with SARin processing from L1A (FBR) to L2 using the SAMOSA retracking model.
The service is based on the SARvatore Processor Prototype that has been developed entirely by Salvatore Dinardo in the scope of the EOP-SER Altimetry Team (Salvatore Dinardo, Bruno Manuel Lucas, Jerome Benveniste) at ESA-ESRIN.
The processor has been further upgraded (SARINvatore) to accept in input L1a (FBR) SARIN data products and build SARIN Level-2 geophysical data products as well.
The processors will make use of the EarthConsole P-PRO distributed computing platform to deliver timely the output data products.
These output data products are generated in standard NetCDF format (using CF Convention), and they are compatible with BRAT (Broadview Radar Altimetry Toolbox) and other NetCDF tools.
