Tandem-L is a proposal for a SAR mission with two L-band satellites which aims to observe globally dynamic processes of the Earth’s surface. The mission will provide, on the one hand, 12 higher-level products addressing the problematics of, for example 3D forest structure measurements or large scale deformation monitoring. On the other hand, it will deliver focused SAR data to generate other products, which will contribute to the understanding of e.g. ice or ocean dynamics. This paper presents the current systematic generation concepts of these products as outlined during the first part of the phase B1.
