  • This collection contains Sentinel-1 Level-2 Ocean (OCN) products for wind, wave and currents applications which may consist of the following geophysical components: Ocean Wind field (OWI), Ocean Swell spectra (OSW), and Surface Radial Velocity (RVL). The availability of components depends on the acquisition mode. Sentinel-1 is a polar-orbiting, all-weather, day-and-night C-band radar imaging mission funded by the European Union and carried out by the ESA within the Copernicus Programme, consisting of a constellation of two satellites. Sensor: C-SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) Repeat rate: 12 days (1 satellite), 6 days (2 satellites) Launch date: 03 April 2014 Archiving start date: 12 April 2014 Mission Status: ongoing Terms and conditions for the use of Sentinel data https://scihub.copernicus.eu/twiki/pub/SciHubWebPortal/TermsConditions/TC_Sentinel_Data_31072014.pdf Sentinel-1 Mission Overview https://sentinel.esa.int/web/sentinel/missions/sentinel-1 Sentinel-1 Level-2 OCN Products Overview https://earth.esa.int/web/sentinel/technical-guides/sentinel-1-sar/products-algorithms/level-2-algorithms Spatial resolution of Sentinel-1 Level-2 OCN data: https://sentinels.copernicus.eu/web/sentinel/user-guides/sentinel-1-sar/resolutions/level-2-ocean File format of measurement data: netCDF Suggested software: ESA SNAP/Sentinel Toolbox (http://step.esa.int/main/download/) Please note: Support for OCN-data is still limited.
