When I open a SLSTR L1 product in SNAP, the u and v wind speed components are not available in the Tie-point grids.
It would be nice to have them as the other meteo fields and why not to directly have the modulus of the wind speed (sqrt(u²+v²)).
Have you planned to implement that soon?
you need to enable the reading of the wind speed components in the settings.
in the main menu select Tools / Options.
Select the S3TBX tab and enable the option Read Sentinel-3 products with profile tie-point data
But I agree that they should be there by default.
This will be changed soon. We recently identified this as problem ourselves. It is already contained in our issue tracker
Thanks a lot.
It works now
