Cryosat QA

L2 Mispointing Angle Monitoring

IPF Baseline:
Phase:

Cryosat L2 data in Baseline-C includes parameters for Roll, Pitch and Yaw from which the mispointing angle of the antenna can be derived.

This is the angle between the antenna pointing (direction of beam) and the nadir direction.

Nominally this should be zero.

This tool provides global and polar plots and histograms of the L2 Mispointing Angle and the Roll, Pitch and Yaw parameters for each 30-day data take for data from:

  • ascending passes,
  • descending passes,
  • all passes

Note that for SAR mode, cycles 55 -60, the L2 product fields are empty due to a bug ( pointing vectors are still correctly set ). This will be fixed when ESA install a patch in the opertional chain. ESA warning here.
