Minimize Processing Control Parameters
The SLSTR Level-1 processing control parameter 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 SLSTR stripe processing (stripe A, B or TDI for SWIR channels) and activating the processing mode (observation, calibration or joint 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).
