Which data products will be available from the MERLIN mission?

The precise measurements performed by MERLIN require a careful processing, with reliable algorithms, to ensure the final performance of the mission. A Payload Data Processing Centre (PLDP) will operationally produce and distribute the official products of the mission to the users by request. The level 1 to level 3 products will be publicly available, while access to the level 0 data will be restricted to expert users only.

Further details on the instruments and observing principals can be found under Mission.
