Since beginning of July 2013, a new version 2.60 of the L3 OS processor generating salinity averaged values has been implemented. Different spatial and temporal resolutions for averaging are used with this new version :
- 4 different spatial resolutions : 25 km, 50 km, 100 km and 200 km
- 2 different temporal resolution : 10 day average and monthly average
So 8 different averaged salinity fields are generated.
!! Be careful as the name of the product changed with this evolution :
- former versions (for example v2.4 or v2.5) generates only 200 km monthly averaged salinity field. Product type is CSF3Px with x = A for ascending, D for descending and _ for mixed orbits
for example SM_OPER_MIR_CSF3PA_20130101T000000_20130131T235959_250_001_7.tgz
- current version v2.6 generates 4 different types of products :
CSF3Ax for 25 km resolution
CFF3Bx for 50 km resolution
CSF3Cx for 100 km resolution
CSF3Dx for 200 km resolution
with x = A for ascending, D for descending and _ for mixed orbits
for example SM_OPER_MIR_CSF3AA_20130101T000000_20130131T235959_260_001_7.tgz or SM_OPER_MIR_CSF3DA_20130101T000000_20130110T235959_260_001_7.tgz
Keep in mind the name of the 200 km resolution product is different between lower and current versions.
