Update of Sentinel-2 Level-2A Processing Baseline

02 October 2018

As of 8 October 2018, a new Processing Baseline (02.09) will be deployed for Sentinel-2 Level-2A products.

This new Processing Baseline features the following changes:

  • Improvement of the accuracy of Scene Classification over water, urban and bare areas thanks to the usage of the Climate Change Initiative (CCI) Land Cover data.
  •  
  • Improvement of the spatial homogeneity of surface reflectance between adjacent tiles.

Processing Baseline 02.09 remains compliant with the current version of the Product Specification Document (PSD v14.5).

Please note that the SNAP Software is aligned to the new Processing Baseline as well.
