Minimize Level-1A ECHO_SAR_Ku Product: Instrument Status

Level-1A ECHO_SAR_Ku Product: Instrument Status

PARAMETER

SAR mode identifier

NETCDF NAME

SAR_mode_l1a_echo_sar_ku

DESCRIPTION

The SAR mode identifier is a flag that indicates the tracking mode of the SRAL instrument:

  1. Closed-loop mode: autonomous position of the range window using the median algorithms

  2. Open-loop mode: range window position based on a-priori knowledge of terrain altitude derived from a Digital Elevation Model (DEM)
