Minimize SST Retrieval Parameters
Five different SST coefficient data files are used in this specific SLSTR Level-2 section, dedicated to SST retrieval. They retain the same format and content for the following groupings (N2, N3R and N3)(D2, D3):
  • The SLSTR N2 (single view, two channels) SST coefficients data file contains tabulated coefficients for retrieval of SST using the N2 retrieval algorithm and for water vapour and proximity error estimate calculations.
  • The SLSTR N3R (single view, three channels and aerosol robust) SST coefficients data file contains tabulated coefficients for retrieval of SST using the N3R retrieval algorithm and for water vapour and proximity error estimate calculations.
  • The SLSTR N3 (single view, three channels) SST coefficients data file contains tabulated coefficients for retrieval of SST using the N3 retrieval algorithm and for water vapour and proximity error estimate calculations.
  • The SLSTR D2 (dual view, two channels) SST coefficients data file contains tabulated coefficients for retrieval of SST using the D2 retrieval algorithm and for water vapour and proximity error estimate calculations. The detailed structure and content of this file is identical to that of the N2 SST coefficients data file with the exception of paths and detectors dimensions which are defined for the oblique and nadir views, i.e. oblique_paths and nadir_paths in this order.
  • The SLSTR D3 (dual view, three channels) SST coefficients data file contains tabulated coefficients for retrieval of SST using the D3 retrieval algorithm and for water vapour and proximity error estimate calculations. The detailed structure and content of this file is identical to that of the N2 SST coefficients data file with the exception of paths and detectors dimensions which are defined for the oblique and nadir views, i.e. oblique_paths and nadir_paths in this order.
