CryoSat L2 geophysical ocean products (GOP) covering the period 11-23 June 2021 were found to have lower quality than nominal products, especially in coastal regions, due to inaccuracies in some of the auxiliary files used in the processing.
CryoSat-2 data users are informed that due to planned maintenance of the WAN equipment in Kiruna on Wednesday, March 24th, they could experience a delay in Near Real Time and Near Real Time Ocean Products (NOP) availability on the ESA Science Server throughout the day.
CryoSat Ice Near Real Time (NRT) data users are informed that starting today NRT products have been switched to a systematic production. This means that, from now on, all SAR and SIN transitions will be generated in NRT.
A new study has shown that navigation magnetometer data from the CryoSat-2 and Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment Follow-On (GRACE-FO) satellites can be used to diagnose weak low-/mid-latitude ionospheric currents.
CryoSat - ESA's ice mission - recently celebrated ten years in space, during which it has provided invaluable data for research. To mark the anniversary we put together an infographic about the mission and its many achievements.
