New time duration for SLSTR L2 NTC user products

27 April 2020

A change has been made in the time duration of the Copernicus Sentinel-3A/3B SLSTR L2 NTC user products. The new Copernicus Sentinel-3 Land PDGS Product Units Configuration document describes the configuration applied for the generation of the products at Land PDGS.

Similar to the current SLSTR NRT production, they will be generated and distributed in 3 minutes unit frames, based on a 3 minutes framing reference system having origin in the orbit ANX.

As a result of the change NRT and NTC SLSTR L2 product frames will be aligned to the same start/stop time. The new product frame duration will be also applicable to all the reprocessed SLSTR L2 products generated and distributed starting from 5 May 2020.
