python SAR processor for level-1 SLC product

`xsarslc` is a python package that allow to compute SAR cross spectrum and advanced radar parameters from Sentinel-1 SLC products.

It handles 3 modes of acquisitions IW , EW and WV.

The source code is relying on `xarray` library.

documentation is available here:

It contains an Algorithm Tehcnical Baseline Document (ATBD) section, describing the equations of each processing steps and their rationales.
