Minimize Overview

The Sea and Land Surface Temperature Radiometer (SLSTR) is a dual scan temperature radiometer, which has been selected for the low Earth orbit (800 - 830 km altitude) ESA Sentinel-3 operational mission as a part of the Copernicus (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security) programme.

The principal objective of SLSTR products is to provide global and regional Sea and Land Surface Temperature (SST, LST) to a very high level of accuracy (better than 0.3 K for SST) for both climatological and meteorological applications.
