MERIS L2 Low Pressure flag
MERIS L2 Low Pressure flag
11/23/10 12:42 PM
Hello,

I note from the MERIS product specification that the Low pressure flag is only applicable for Land and Cloud pixels, however when viewing products in BEAM VISAT this can be seen to also be raised over water pixels. This byte from the flag coding actually indicates the presence of White Scatter (and is provided as a separate flag in Beam) and not Low pressure for Water pixels. Couldn't this be misleading by indicating that there is a computed pressure difference over Water?

Thanks,
Chris

Hello Chris,

You're right. The flag should only be raised over land and cloud pixels not over water.
I've created a bug report (BEAM-1214) in our issue tracker.
Thanks for reporting this issue.

best wishes
Marco
