This activity will analyse the usage of the coming EISCAT 3D measurement data in the framework of the ESA SSA SWE Segment. The activity will assess how the foreseen measurement data can potentially be used by the SWE ESCs to enhance existing SWE products and services and to potentially develop new products, in particular focussing on Arctic Region services. This activity will also investigatethe usage of EISCAT 3D data in product validation. The operational requirements for the SSA SWE products and the possible constraints of the EISCAT 3D system will be analysed and a roadmap for utilising the data will be proposed.
