CryoSat-2 data products users are informed that, since 10 june 2014, a new CryoSat-2 processing service is active on the G-POD platform (https://gpod.eo.esa.int/).
This service, called SARvatore – SAR Versatile Altimetric Toolkit for Ocean Research & Exploitation -, provides to CryoSat users worldwide the capability of processing on demand and on line the CryoSat-2 SAR FBR data, with many processing options to select from, and post the output SAR L2 geophysical data products in NetCDF format.
In order to experiment with SARvatore (on the open ocean, test it near the coast, over estuaries, rivers, lakes, near sea-ice, anywhere until the (quite robust) SAMOSA (ocean) model breaks down!), please register for an EO-SSO user account (https://earth.esa.int/web/guest/general-registration) and then contact G-POD team (at email@example.com ) to request that they activate the service for you.

Looking forward to your feedback.
