Minimize Waveform Samples

The waveform samples are computed at Level-2 processing.

LRM mode Ku and C bands: the echo is corrected for the GPRW effect

PLRM Ku and C bands: the echo is the so-called averaged echo corrected for the GPRW effect

SAR mode Ku band: the echo is corrected for Doppler range effect, phase/power burst calibration and GPWR effect

 

PARAMETER

Waveforms Samples

NETCDF NAME

waveform_[x1]_[x2]
[x1]: 1 Hz or 20 Hz data rates
[x2]: Ku-band or C-band.

DESCRIPTION

Waveforms samples are computed in the Level-1 processing chain. LRM mode (Ku and C-bands): the echo waveform is corrected for the Gain Profile Range Window (GPRW) effect. SAR mode C-band: the echo waveform is the averaged echo corrected for GPRW effect. SAR mode Ku-band: the echo is corrected for Doppler range effect, phase/power burst calibration and GPRW effect.
