Sentinel-1 L1C GRD AOI clipped

This block provides GeoTIFF images of Sentinel-1 (A/B)'s C-band synthetic aperture radar sensor, clipped to an AOI, in processing level L-1C Ground Range Detected (GRD).


This block provides AOIs of Sentinel-1 (A/B)'s C-band synthetic aperture radar sensor in processing level L-1C Ground Range Detected (GRD).

This AOI-Clipped block leverages WMTS to produce its output as AOI.

The Copernicus Sentinel-1 is a Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) mission, offering 4 imaging modes with different resolution (down to 5m) and coverage (up to 400m). The mission is composed of a constellation of 2 satellites (1A and 1B) sharing the same orbital plane.
