Welcome to the ESA Aeolus Online Dissemination System

Aeolus Logo




This service provides access to the free and open Aeolus Level 1B and Level 2B Wind Science data products generated in Near Real Time. The Data is organized by collections. Free and open access to reprocessed Aeolus data will be allowed at a later stage.


Direct data download is available here:

L2B Products
L1B Products

The Aeolus products are available in Earth Explorer (EE) file format.

In order to download any products of interest, either via HTTP or FTP, please login with your own ESA EO-SSO account or create one beforehand (Start registration process).

Data download from all other Aeolus collections (not L1B or L2B) is currently restricted to authorised users (Developers, Cal/Val users, etc.) but browsing all Aeolus collections is free and open to any user.

Detailed information on the ESA's Wind Earth Explorer Mission, on the relevant Product Format Specifications and data processing algorithms, can be found on the ESA Earth Online Portal.

The operational L1B and L2B products produced with the latest processing baseline (currently B08) can be openly searched and downloaded, following the guidelines described in the Help Page.

Web Access:

You can search and browse for any Aeolus products openly, from the "Collections" button at the top of this page, but you first need to be logged in in order to download files.

A Simple Online Catalogue allows for data navigation and selection by data type, acquisition date, geographical area (where available) and file format.

FTP Access:

AEOLUS products can also be downloaded from ftps://aeolus-ref-addf.eo.esa.int, i.e. by using explicit FTPS (FTP over SSL/TLS), with your own EO-SSO credentials.

For more details please refer to the online Help Page.

Should you need support please send an e-mail to EOHelp@esa.int
