Sentinel-3A Product Notice - OLCI Level-1B NRT and NTC

This is a Product Notice for the public release of Sentinel-3 Ocean and Land Colour Instrument (OLCI) Level-1B products at Non Time Critical (NTC) timeliness. The status and limitations also apply to the OLCI Level 1B products at Near Real Time (NRT) timeliness.

The Notice describes the OLCI current processing baseline, product and quality limitations, and product availability status.

GSC Sentinel-3 PDGS Products Definition

This document is intended to provide the description of the Sentinel-3 products that will be generated within the Sentinel-3 Payload Data Ground Segment by the Sentinel-3 Instrument Processing Facilities (IPFs).

Sentinel-3 OLCI-A Spectral Response Functions

In the frame of pre-launch and commissioning activities for Sentinel-3's OLCI-A instrument, Spectral Response Functions (SRF) based on on-ground and inflight characterisation measurements were derived. They are described in this technical note.

Sentinel-3 Optical User Test Data Set description

This Technical Note is aimed at describing the Sentinel-3 Optical Test Data Sets (TDS) provided to the user community and the limitations of the TDS'. No detail on the tools used for the generation of the TDS will be provided, but only a high level description.

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 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

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).

Sentinel-3 Product Data Format Specification - OLCI Level 1 and 2 Instrument Products

This document aims to identify and specify the format of Sentinel-3 OLCI products from Level 1 up to Level 2, browse products included.

NB: The product specifications reflect the current operation processor implementation - IPF V05 - they still could be updated before launch or during the commissioning phase.

Sentinel-3 OLCI Confidence Check ATBD

The confidence check ATBD defines the OLCI classification flags and details of example quality flags that will provide the end users with confidence in the OLCI products.

Sentinel-3 OLCI Gaseous Correction ATBD

This ATBD describes the impact of the relevant absorption features due to atmospheric gases within the spectral domain of OLCI. Procedures will be discussed to correct the influence of atmospheric gas absorption for those OLCI channels, which are significantly affected.

Sentinel-3 OLCI Pixel Classification ATBD

The aim of the classification is to distinguish water and land i.e. it will be designed to separate pixels into the water and land chains as there is currently no OLCI atmospheric processing chain.

Sentinel-3 OLCI Ocean Colour Turbid Water ATBD

This ATBD describes the algorithm for the determination of inherent optical properties (IOPs) and the concentration of water constituents in case 2 waters from water leaving radiance reflectance spectra to be used for the Ocean and Land Colour Imager (OLCI) of the Earth Observation Mission Sentinel-3 of the European Space Agency (ESA).

Sentinel-3 OLCI Water Vapour ATBD

This ATBD describes the retrieval of water vapour from OLCI measurements above land, ocean and clouds.

Sentinel-3 OLCI Ocean Colour Products in Case 1 Waters ATBD

The purpose of this document is to lay out algorithms for the OLCI ocean colour products in Case 1 waters.

Sentinel-3 OLCI Atmospheric corrections over Case 1 Waters ATBD

The purpose of this document is to lay out the OLCI atmospheric correction algorithm above Case 1 waters.

Sentinel-3 OLCI Bright Waters Atmospheric Correction ATBD

The purpose of this algorithm is to determine the correction for NIR reflectance needed for the full atmosphere correction model - applied to visible wavelengths.

Sentinel-3 OLCI Transparency Products ATBD

The purpose of this document is to lay out algorithms for the sea water transparency products.

Sentinel-3 OLCI Terrestrial Chlorophyll Index ATBD

This Algorithmic Theoretical Basis Document (ATBD) describes the algorithm used to estimate chlorophyll content over land from Level-1 OLCI products from the Sentinel-3 mission. The algorithm called the OLCI Terrestrial Chlorophyll Index (OTCI) is a unique chlorophyll index for OLCI data. This document identifies the source of input data; outlines the physical principles and mathematical background; justifies this algorithm and then explores its limitations and assumptions.

Sentinel-3 OLCI Photosynthetically Active Radiation ATBD

Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR) reaching the ocean surface is defined as the quantum energy flux from the Sun in the spectral range 400-700 nm; units are Einstein/m2/day. PAR is essential for the carbon-cycle modellers to convert the measured chlorophyll concentration into an estimate of ocean productivity, and hence of carbon sequestration.
