Presentation type: Type Forum

Hy-2B is an NSOAS satellite, it was launch on 30-10-2018 and belongs to the long series of Hy-2 satellites. This presentation aims to show the quality and interest of L2 IGDR products, used operationally since the 7Th of July 2020 in the CLS/CNES multimission system for Sea Level and Waves to provide cross-calibrated and gridded products to the Copernicus Marine Service. The spatial and temporal availability of L2 IGDR data turns out very good and proves the robustness of NSOAS ground segment. Furthermore, good general statistics of input Hy-2B data are observed. Comparison of Hy-2B with Jason-3 shows good consistency and confirms the good quality of Hy-2B data.
