L3C

Long name: 
Level 3 Collated
Description: 
On top of levels from L0 to L4 defined by the remote sensing community to describe the processing level of products, the SST community has developed a set of SST definitions in the context of the GHRSST. Gridding a single L2P file produces an "uncollated" L3 file (L3U). Multiple L2P files are gridded to produce either a "collated" L3 file (L3C) from a single sensor or a "super-collated" L3 file from multiple sensors (L3S).
