Sentinel-3 User Handbook

The Sentinel-3 Mission Guide provides a high-level description of the mission objectives, satellite description and ground segment. It also covers an introduction to heritage missions, thematic areas and services, orbit characteristics and coverage, instrument payloads and data products.

Sentinel-3 Product Data Format Specification - Product Structures

This document aims to identify and specify the common definitions, structures and conventions of the Sentinel-3 products from Level 0 up to Level 2.

Sentinel-3 Test Data Set Generation report for Level 2 SRAL/MWR IPF

This document is a technical note describing the work performed in the framework of the AD 2 proposal, that is to say the generation of a Sentinel-3 Level 2 Test Data Set within the Sentinel-3 Core Payload Data Ground Segment Instrument Processing Facility Implementation project.

Sentinel-3 PDGS File Naming Convention

This Technical Note provides the File Naming Convention adopted by the Sentinel-3 PDGS for the following data classes:

  • Instrument data products, including
    • Level-0 products
    • Higher level data products
  • Auxiliary data

Sentinel-3 SRAL/MWR Surface Topography Mission (STM) Level-2 ATBD

This document is aimed at defining and specifying the "scientific" algorithms used in the Level-2 processing of the Sentinel-3 Surface Topography Mission SRAL and MWR data, which is defined in the L2 Processing Specification document (AD 10).

Sentinels POD Product Handbook

This document describes the Sentinels POD Product Handbook. It describes the products generated as part of the provisioning of the Sentinels POD Service. This includes the products generated at the Sentinels POD Service Centre itself, and, those generated by the Sentinel-3 POD Instrument Processing Facility running at the S-3 Core PDGS.

Sentinels POD Service File Format Specifications

The purpose of this document is to define the product structure and the content of each file generated and delivered by the POD Service Centre and the Sentinel-3 NRT POD Instrument Processing Facility (IPF) across its interfaces to the Sentinels (1, 2 and 3) Payload Data Ground Segments (PDGSs).
