Cryosat L2 Data Availability from Kiruna

Cryosat performance is monitored from Level-2 data products provided by the ESA IPF processing centre at Kiruna. Data has been monitored since the start of the operational phase (18-Oct-2010) and this site shows output from all available versions of the IPF processors:

A reprocessing of the full mission using a single version (Baseline-B) of the IPF processor was completed in December 2013. A new version (Baseline-C) became operational in April 2015.

Baseline D will become operational at the end of May 2019. To see the QA results from the Baseline-D Test Dataset, select 'D' from the Baseline drop-down list at the top of each sub-page

This page shows the latest data availability status for each product type. A table of instrument unavailability is also available from ESA.
