CryoSat Ice Baseline D reprocessed data available soon

The first 6 months of CryoSat Ice Baseline D reprocessed data are being prepared for publication.
 
Current policy is to keep two baselines (current and previous) available online for both Ice and Ocean products.
 
In preparation for the release, Ice Baseline C data on the FTP Science Server will be moved to a dedicated top level folder until Baseline E is introduced.

CryoSat L1 and L2 degraded data quality during roll manoeuvres

Due to two small experimental roll manoeuvres, CryoSat L1b and L2 data are affected by degraded quality during the following time periods:

  • 14/09/2019 from 02:50:15 to 03:01:25 UTC
  • 22/09/2019 from 14:40:26 to 14:51:26 UTC


However, the above manoeuvres were performed over land areas with limited impact on CryoSat science operations.

Abstract submission open for CryoSat 10th anniversary science conference

The European Space Agency is pleased to announce the forthcoming CryoSat 10th Anniversary Science Conference, which will take place from 20 – 23 April 2020 in Taormina, Sicily (Italy).

While the conference will focus on the latest scientific results from the mission, it is also a celebration of the remarkable contribution that CryoSat has made to our understanding of the cryosphere and its role in the Earth system and the climate, and, in turn, the impacts on society.

If you would like to attend or submit an abstract, please note the following deadlines:

  • Abstract submission opens on 21 October 2019 and closes on 20 December
  • Registration to the event will open on 4 November 2019 and will close on 15 March 2020


Taormina is one of the most stimulating cultural destinations in Europe but also a well-known tourist destination. If you are planning to attend, we encourage you to book accommodation as soon as possible in order to benefit from the best hotel rates.

For more information and to stay updated on the event, please visit the conference website.

CryoSat - Geographical Mode Mask 4.0 released

A new Geographical Mode Mask (v 4.0) is operational from Week 34 2019 (19 August - 26 August) onwards The mask is the basis of the CryoSat mission planning and defines the mode switching of the SIRAL instrument while the satellite revolves around the Earth.
 
Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) (green) is operated over sea-ice areas and over some ocean basins and coastal zones. SAR Interferometric (SARIn) (purple) mode is used over steeply sloping ice-sheet margins, over some geostrophic ocean currents and over small ice caps and areas of mountain glaciers. It is also used over some major hydrological river basins. Low Resolution Mode (LRM) is operated over areas of the continental ice sheets (red), over oceans and over land not covered by other modes.
