CryoSat determines variations in the thickness of continental ice sheets and marine ice cover. Europe's first ice mission is an advanced radar altimeter specifically designed to monitor the most dynamic sections of Earth's cryosphere.
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.
