Minimize Data Formats

The SYN data format follows the format defined for each SENTINEL-3 product, i.e. the PDGS Product Specification. Each product package includes:

  • a manifest file containing a metadata section and a data object section
  • measurement data files
  • annotation data files, if defined.

Level-2 user product, generated for the operational dissemination to SENTINEL-3 users, has to be distinguished from the internal Level-1 product, only used internally for normal processing reasons.
