New CryoSat-2 processing service (reposted from Cryolist)

Dear Colleagues,
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 ( 
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 ( and then contact G-POD team (at ) to request that they activate the service for you.
More information is available here:
Looking forward to your feedback. 
Best regards,
Salvatore Dinardo, Bruno Manuel Lucas and Jérôme Benveniste

About Seelye Martin

Seelye Martin received his Ph.D. in engineering mechanics from Johns Hopkins University in 1967 then spent two years as a research associate in the Department of Meteorology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 1969 he took up a position in the School of Oceanography at the University of Washington where he is now an Emeritus Professor. Beginning in 1987, he taught courses on remote sensing of the oceans. Professor Martin has been involved with passive microwave, visible/infrared and radar ice research since 1979, and has served on a number of NASA and NOAA committees and panels involving remote sensing and high latitude processes. He has made many trips to the Arctic for research on sea ice properties and oceanography. From 2006-2008, he worked at NASA Headquarters as Program Manager for the Cryosphere, where he also served as program scientist for the ICESat-1 and ICESat-2 missions. After leaving Headquarters, from 2009 -2012, he worked in a variety of roles for the NASA high-latitude IceBridge remote sensing aircraft program. For this work, in 2012 he was awarded the NASA Exceptional Public Service Medal.
