  • This dataset contains simulation results from ensemble assimilation of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) water level observation into Lisflood-FP flood forecast model for the the lower Severn-Avon rivers in the South West United Kingdom. This was run over a 30.6 x 49.8 km (1524 km2) domain, as part of Developing enhanced impact models for integration with next generation NWP and climate outputs (DEMON) project (NE/I005242/1). COSMO-Skymed Synthetic Aperture Radar (CSK-SAR) data were acquired processed and transformed into Water Level Observations (WLOs) by crossing with LiDAR Digital Terrain Model. Data from Environment Agency (EA) rain gauges were used to estimate precipitation and combined with potential evapotranspiration data from the Met Office's Met Office Rainfall and Evapo-transpiration Calculation System (MORECS) to generate forcings within the "topHSPF" catchment-scale rainfall-runoff hydrologic model. These were used in tern to generate simulated runoff forecast used as the forcing for the coupled Lisflood-FP v5.9 inundation model. CSK-SAR based WLO were assimilated into ensemble simulations using the Lisflood-FP v5.9 model, run with perturbed physics (friction parameters, bathymetric errors) and runoff inputs from the topHSPF hydrologic model

  • This dataset collection contains radar data from the C-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) on the European Space Agency (ESA) Sentinel 1B satellite. Sentinel 1B was launched on 25th April 2016 and provides continuous all-weather, day and night imaging radar data. Three acquisition modes are available: Stripmap (SM), Interferometric Wide swath (IW), and Extra Wide swath (EW). The main operational mode is IW. The EW mode is primarily used for wide area coastal monitoring. The SM mode is only used on special request for extraordinary events such as emergency management. The SM, IW and EW modes are available in single (HH or VV) and dual (HH+HV or VV+VH) polarisation. The C-band Synthetic Aperture Radar images the Earth with enhanced frequency and revisit times obtaining full Earth coverage every two weeks. Timeliness and reliability is optimized for emergency response and operational applications with Europes’s coastal zones and shipping routes being monitored on a daily basis. The data has a wide range of scientific applications including sea-ice monitoring, imaging of forests and investigation into the carbon cycle, and the analysis of earthquakes. Data are provided by the European Space Agency (ESA) and are made available via CEDA to any registered scientific user in the UK.

  • These data have been created by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) and Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC) in order to cost effectively provide high quality, Analysis Ready Data (ARD) for a wide range of applications. The dataset contains modified Copernicus Sentinel-1 data processed into a normalised radar backscatter product on a linear scale in dB. Products acquired from ESA are Ground-Range Detected (GRD) Interferometric Wide-swath (IW) in the dual VV+VH polarisation (DV) mode, where both VV and VH polarisations are collected. Defra and JNCC data were processed on separate platforms using a common specification to produce complementary outputs.

  • This dataset contains Interferometric Wide swath (IW) Ground Range Detected (GRD) High Resolution (HR) C-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data from the European Space Agency (ESA) Sentinel 1B satellite. Sentinel 1B was launched on 25th April 2016 and provides continuous all-weather, day and night imaging radar data. The IW mode is the main operational mode. The IW mode supports single (HH or VV) and dual (HH+HV or VV+VH) polarisation. These data are available via CEDA to any registered user.

  • This dataset contains Extra Wide swath (EW) Ground Range Detected (GRD) Medium Resolution (MR) C-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data from the European Space Agency (ESA) Sentinel 1A satellite. Sentinel 1A was launched on 3rd April 2014 and provides continuous all-weather, day and night imaging radar data. The EW mode is primarily used for wide area coastal monitoring. The EW mode supports single (HH or VV) and dual (HH+HV or VV+VH) polarisation. These data are available via CEDA to any registered scientific user in the UK.

  • This dataset contains level 1 Interferometric Wide swath (IW) Single Look Complex (SLC) C-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data from the European Space Agency (ESA) Sentinel 1A satellite. Sentinel 1A was launched on 3rd April 2014 and provides continuous all-weather, day and night imaging radar data. The IW mode is the main operational mode. The IW mode supports single (HH or VV) and dual (HH+HV or VV+VH) polarisation. The IW SLC product contains one image per sub-swath, per polarisation channel, for a total of three or six images. Each sub-swath image consists of a series of bursts, where each burst was processed as a separate SLC image. The individually focused complex burst images are included, in azimuth-time order, into a single sub-swath image, with black-fill demarcation in between Unlike SM and WV SLC products, which are sampled at the natural pixel spacing, the images for all bursts in all sub-swaths of an IW SLC product are re-sampled to a common pixel spacing grid in range and azimuth. The resampling to a common grid eliminates the need for further interpolation in case, in later processing stages, the bursts are merged to create a contiguous ground range, detected image. These data are available via CEDA to any registered CEDA user.
