Sentinel-6A MF Jason-CS L2 Advanced Microwave Radiometer (AMR-C) NTC Geophysical Parameters (Unvalidated)
Cloud Enabled
DOI10.5067/S6AMW-2NTCU
Short NameJASON_CS_S6A_L2_AMR_RAD_NTC_UNVALIDATED
DescriptionProvides L2 non-time critical (NTC; 60-day latency) geophysical information from the Advanced Microwave Radiometer on the Sentinel-6A Michael Freilich spacecraft including surface type, wind speed, water vapor, brightness temperature, sigma0, wet troposphere, and associated quality flags. The data are interpolated to intervals that correspond to altimetry measurements from the Poseidon-4 SAR to supply the geophysical and environmental corrections for altimetry. The S6A NTC product is analogous to the Jason-3 GDR product.
