Abstract:
Data from SeaWiFS instrument, on board of the Orbview-2 (formerly named SeaStar) Spacecraft, are at present received at Maspalomas, Tromsoe and Scanzano Stations. For those Stations, coordinated by ESA, the access has been obtained through NASA by the signature of a letter of agreement (Dear Colleague Letter for data reception) between the Station Operator and NASA with the endorsement of ESA. The Level 1A SeaWiFS Distribution product is a portion of 4 minutes extracted from the corresponding Level 1A archive product and reformatted into CEOS format for distribution. It consists of 5 CEOS data files: - VOLUME DIRECTORY FILE, which provides all product identification, documentation and processing information. - LEADER FILE, which provides scene related information. - IMAGERY FILE, which contains Level 1A image data (Raw data). - ANNOTATION FILE, which provides navigation angles information and coastlines/boundaries/grid. - NULL VOLUME DIRECTORY FILE, which is necessary on tape media to indicate the end of the data. Product characteristics: --------------------- Pixel Resolution: 1.1 km at nadir Size: 1285 pixels/line Content: Original SeaWIFS 8 bands raw data level0; Geolocation grid; Sun and Satellites Angles coastlines, boundaries Land Sea Mask. ------------------ The rules for the access and distribution of the SeaWiFS data are summarised as follows: 1) The Stations will have free access to full resolution data decrypted from the real-time down-link acquired during Satellite overpasses after a delay period of minimum 14 days from acquisition. 2) Data have to be used for research purposes only and can be distributed at cost of reproduction only to users that have signed a letter of agreement with NASA (Dear Colleague Letter for data access). User access to SeaWiFS products is realized through the MUIS. MUIS can be accessed through the WWW and allows the user to browse into the Quick-looks of satellite passes that have been acquired and archived by the Stations. The user is allowed to select the scenes and specify the type of product to order. The order can then be sent either via e-mail or fax to the Esrin User Service. Acceptance of the order by ESRIN is submitted to the verification that the user is included in the list of research users acknowledged by NASA. Delivery of products will be done by mail on Exabyte tapes. On-line delivery through FTP is planned for the future and subject to the availability of higher throughput lines.
