Event: 2020 Ocean Surface Topography Science Team Meeting (virtual)

Session: CFOSAT

Presentation type: Type Forum

Since the end of June of this year, SWIM products are available to all users, with important improvements.
Among other, 2D wave spectra are now provided for all azimuth, thanks to a mitigation of the speckle noise impact in the near along track directions.
A modification of the modulation transfer function also impact positively the wave parameters retrieval.
This presentation will describe the latest evolutions that are planned to be applied in operational product generation this month.
These evolutions will be effective for the reprocessing campaign that will be performed by the end of the year to provide an homogenous set of products over the CFOSAT lifetime
