Minimize Processing Levels Introduction

The OLCI operational processor is divided into three major processing levels.

  • Level-0 processing aims to extract and check the raw data contained in the ISPs. These data are time sorted and annotated.
  • Level-1 processing is divided into three processing modes. Earth Observation mode deals with Level-0 products to compute radiometric measurements for each OLCI band. Radiometric and spectral calibration processing modes aim to compute calibration coefficients.
  • Level-2 processing is divided into two main sections, one associated with Level-1 products to compute water products, the other associated with land products.
