CryoSat Wiki and Forum now open

Following a recommendation from the recent CryoSat User Workshop, held in Dresden in March 2013, we are pleased to announce a new CryoSat User e-Collaboration Environment (CUeCE), which is now open to the user community at the following URL: https//wiki.services.eoprtal.org/tiki-index.php?page=CryoSat Wiki

The CUeCE is an Internet platform for sharing information, results, resources and documents amongst the CryoSat user community and is comprised of three main parts:

- CryoSat Wiki: providing fast access to CryoSat documents, publications, technical notes, proceedings and other resources. 

- CryoSat Thematic Forums: for the sharing of information and discussion amongst the CryoSat user community

- CryoSat Operation News: for up-to-date, relevant operational news or topics related to the mission. Users can also subscribe to receive notification every time a new article is posted

In order to access the Portal users will need to register and open an SSO account, users who have access to ESA data should already have an SSO account. In any case, credentials can be requested from eohelp@esa.int

A video tutorial on how to navigate the Portal is available here

In addition, the Basic User Guide on how to navigate to the Portal can be downloaded from here

CryoSat - New long term predicted orbit file released for CUT program

CryoSat users are informed that a new long term predicted orbit file has been released. It is recommended that CUT users should update the orbital data in the program to preserve accuracy.

When starting the CUT program, users should receive a notification that a new ROEF is available, with an option to download and use it. This will ensure that the ground tracks displayed in the program will be accurate for the next year.

CryoSat SIRAL Level 2 intermediate products now available

Following requests from the CryoSat scientific user community, SIRAL Level 2 intermediate products have now been made available for access.

These L2I products are now available on the CryoSat Science server ftp://science-pds.cryosat.esa.int following the same scheme used for the L1b, L2 and GDR products.

Currently the L2I products are also disseminated from the CryoSat Cal-Val server ftp://calval-pds.cryosat.esa.int, however this parallel dissemination of new L2I production to the Cal-Val server will be discontinued from 30 May 2013, from which date the Science server will remain the single access point for new L2I data products. Historical data present on the Cal-Val server will be gradually copied to the Science server. Access to L2I on Cal-Val will be disabled as soon as all historical data is copied to the Science server.

Baseline B reprocessed L2I data from LTA will also be made available on the Science server as soon as they are validated for dissemination.

To access CryoSat data follow the How to access CryoSat data page.
