Sentinel 3 OLCI L2 Land Processing Baseline Release Notice

17 December 2021

We are pleased to announce the release of a new processing baseline [2.79-A and 1.57-B] for Copernicus Sentinel-3 concerning the following products:

  • OL_2_LFR in NRT and NTC timeliness


Information about the changes and the characterisation of the new L2 Land products is available in the following product notice:


The new processing baseline has been released on the 16th of December 2021.

The latest release of the OLCI L2 Land products includes two new evolutions:

  • The OLCI Global Vegetation Index (OGVI) product has been renamed according to its scientific definition: Green Instantaneous Fraction of Absorbed Photosynthetically Available Radiation (GIFAPAR)

  • All variables containing uncertainty estimates associated to geophysical products have been renamed to better reflect their content: var_err is renamed as var_unc, where var is any geophysical product.

The content of the product is otherwise unchanged and remains fully consistent with the previous Processing Baseline.

Both evolutions are detailed in the Product Notice accompanying the release.
