Sentinel-2 Data Quality Report Issue 22 (December 2017)

This document provides the status of the Sentinel-2 product quality as it stands in December 2017. It updates the information supplied in previously issued Reports.

Sentinel-2 Products Specification Document (PSD)

This document specifies the format of Sentinel-2 products, from Level-0 up to Level-1C.
 

Note: The XSD schemas relative to Level-1A, Level-1B and Level-1C products are attached to this document as a *.zipp attachment. The attachment should be saved, and renamed as .zip to enable it to be opened.

L2A Input Output Data Definitions

This document lists the Input Output Data Definitions of the Sen2Cor application.

The document comes with four attachments:

  • Sen2Cor_240_L2A_CAL_AC_GIPP.pdf - the Schema of L2A GIPP AC (Atmospheric Correction) File
  • Sen2Cor_240_L2A_CAL_SC_GIPP.pdf - the Schema of L2A GIPP SC (Scene Classification) File
  • Sen2Cor_240_L2A_GIPP.pdf - Schema of L2A GIPP File
  • Sen2Cor_240_L2A_GIPP.zipp - XSD schemas of L2A GIPP AC, L2A GIPP SC, and L2A GIPP. NOTE: This file is configured as a *.zipp attachment. The attachment should be saved, and renamed as .zip to enable it to be opened.

Sentinel 2 MSI - Level 2A Product Format Specifications Technical Note

This document defines the organisation of the XSD schemas describing Sentinel-2 Level 2A Product Format Specifications. The XSD schemas structure is based on Sentinel-2 Level 2A Product Format Specifications [S2-PFS].

Sentinel 2 MSI - Level 2A Product Definition

This document defines the content of the Sentinel-2 Level 2A product. The document has to be considered as an add-on to [S2-PDD] for the Level-2A product. Therefore the structure of the document is strongly in line with the chapter for Level-2A processing in [S2-PDD].

Sentinel-2 Spectral Response Functions (S2-SRF)

This spreadsheet contains the measured spectral responses for each band of the Sentinel-2 MultiSpectral Instrument (MSI) for the different satellite units. NOTE: The spectral characterisation of S2A Bands B01 and B02 have been identified as being affected by a measurement defect. A correction of this defect is currently under development and will lead to an update of the reference spectral function later in 2017. In the meantime, as the characteristics of S2A and S2B instruments are comparable, the spectral response of bands B01 and B02 of S2B can also be used for S2A as well.
