2018 CryoSat Ice Baseline D reprocessed data now available

We're pleased to inform the CryoSat scientific community that the reprocessed CryoSat Ice Baseline D data for all of 2018 has been published on the Science Server and is available for download.

The reprocessing activity is now completed and data for the missing months in 2019 and 2010 will be published soon. A last announcement will follow when the full reprocessed dataset is available.

2017 CryoSat Ice Baseline D reprocessed data available

We're pleased to announce that the reprocessed CryoSat Ice Baseline D data for all of 2017 has now been published on the Science Server and is available for download.

We are planning to publish the next batch next week. We will follow up with another announcement when the full dataset for 2018 is available.

Quality of CryoSat Near Real Time production restored

CryoSat scientific users are informed that the problem in the delivery of auxiliary data has been resolved. The quality of FDM, NOP and NRT has been affected from 22 April until roughly midday on the 23rd, with some ionospheric correction missing for the entirety of 23 April. The delay in the delivery of the IOP that was noted has also been resolved.

Degraded quality of CryoSat Near Real time production

Due to a delay in the delivery of auxiliary data all the CryoSat near real time production (i.e. FDM, NRT and NOP data) may be suffering from degraded quality starting from validity date 22 April 2020.

Due to the nature of these products, they will not be re-processed. The standard 30-day ice and ocean production is not impacted at this time. We will keep you informed as the situation evolves.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Invitation to Tender: CryoSat Thematic Products / Cryo-TEMPO

ESA is seeking proposals for a new activity aimed at the operational generation and distribution of a collection of CryoSat ThEMatic PrOducts (Cryo-TEMPO) in the areas of sea ice, polar oceans, land ice, coastal areas and hydrology. This activity will build on multiple previous research and development projects and will support a wide community of end-users.

Due to its major contribution in addressing multi-thematic science and operational applications over the past 10 years, the CryoSat mission has been recently extended to tackle new challenges, not only over the Cryosphere, but also over inland water and coastal areas. To achieve this, current data records must be extended into the next decade and the current geophysical retrievals over different kinds of surface need to be optimized.

The core objective of the Cryo-TEMPO activity is therefore to build on the heritage of previously funded research and development projects in order to generate operationally CryoSat thematic products. These new products are expected to be high level, evolve quickly, be aligned with state-of-the-art processing techniques and fulfil the need of wide communities of end-users (e.g. modellers, Earth system scientists and operational/meteorological services), including traceable and fully documented uncertainty parameters.

The deadline for applications is 17 June 2020. You can find all relevant documents and additional information concerning the Cryo-TEMPO tender (AO10244) on the ESA EMITS website.

2014 CryoSat Ice Baseline D reprocessed data available

We're pleased to inform the CryoSat scientific community that the reprocessed CryoSat Ice Baseline D data for all of 2014 has been published on the Science Server and is available for download.

The reprocessing activity is progressing fast and 2015 will be published soon. We are planning to publish batches of six months of data every two weeks. We will follow up with another announcement when a full year is available.

CryoSat 10th Anniversary Science Conference postponed

Due to the recent spread of the COVID-19 virus in Europe, the Organising Committee decided to postpone the CryoSat 10th Anniversary Science Conference to ensure the safety of all participants. The conference has been rescheduled to 5-8 October 2020 and will be taking place in Taormina, Sicily.

The CryoSat 10th Anniversary Science Conference will focus on the latest scientific results from the mission, but will also be 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.

CryoSat data dissemination unavailability

CryoSat data circulation and dissemination from the Kiruna Payload Data Segment (PDS) has been affected since 9 March.
 
We are actively working toward a resolution. We are sorry about any inconvenience this may have caused.
