Cryosat-2 data

The CTOH distributes a new NetCDF-format version of ESA’s L2 Baseline C Cryosat-2 product.


The data are structured in a format very similar to the Jason-2 GDR-D products:


            - 1 file per track, including all altimeter modes (LRM, SAR and SARIN)

            - the filename includes the cycle, sub-cycle, track and sub-track numbers

            - every variable is documented with units and comments

            - length units are consistently in meters

            - longitude, latitude and time are directly available at 1hz and 20hz

            - duplicates or data with time incoherencies have been removed


Some parameters and geophysical corrections of have been added 

(geoid, DEM, distance to coast, mean sea surface,
