Centre ERS d'Archivage et de Traitement, French Research Institute for Exploitation of the Sea, France

Data Center Description
The CERSAT (Centre ERS d'Archivage et de Traitement - French ERS
Processing and Archiving Facility) is part of IFREMER (French
Research Institute for Exploitation of the Sea. It was created
in 1991 as a node of the ESA (European Space Agency) ground
segment for the ERS-1 and ERS-2 Earth observation satellites,
performing off-line processing of the ERS-1 and ERS-2 "low-bit
rate" sensors. CERSAT has then evolved towards a multi-mission
data centre for archiving, processing and validating data from
space borne sensors (such as altimeters, scatterometers,
radiometers, SAR,...).

It is intended for the oceanographic community, making available
homogeneous time series of value-added data relevant to the sea
surface state (wind fields, fluxes, waves or sea-ice).
