the SUM states regarding the data downloaded outside the growing season:
You might notice that the system starts downloading products three months before the defined season start date. This behaviour is intended and the extra data is used to initialize the L2A processor.
Is there any estimation on how important this data is, especially if there’s already a good amount of data within the growing season?
In this case, is it possible and would it make sense to either disable this download, or - if already downloaded - to at least temporarily exclude these files from L2 processing?
