Sentinel-1 in satellittdata.no

We are pleased to inform that Sentinel-1 Ground Range Detected (GRD) Extra Wide (EW) swath mode now are available in satellittdata.no/metadata_search (i.e. Get Data -> National hub). The Sentinel-1 satellites carries a C-band SAR instrumet which is, among others, capable of acquiring radar-"images" of the earth surface independent of clouds in the athmosphere and sunlight. 

Example using data in satellittdata.no.

Currently, the NBS offers to portals; One similar to the poral ESA is using and one that is integrated in satellittdata.no. In the latter portal, the Sentinel products dissiminated are stored in the NetCDF format which, among others, have support for OPeNDAP. We believe that through this approach the threshold is lowered for starting using satellite data. In addition, functionality like subsetting and regridding is possible.
