Minimize Processing Control Parameters

The SLSTR Level-1 processing control parameter file contains the Level-1 processor configuration parameters. This file mainly contains the offsets and scale factors associated with each output variable and reference parameters for several steps in the processing:

  • general switches activating the processing mode
  • some general dimension and timing information
  • values of validity flags used in the reading and testing of housekeeping data
  • index information to differentiate channels in Instrument Source Packet files
  • parameters associated with grid conversions and grid sizes
  • detector pixel indexing
  • VISCAL extraction parameters
  • black bodies parameters
  • parameters used in specific sections (geolocation, surface classification and cloud testing).
