Satellite cousins have ice covered

16 December 2016

Although not designed to deliver information on ice, ESA's Earth Explorer SMOS satellite can detect thin sea-ice. Since its cousin, CryoSat, is better at measuring thicker ice scientists have found a way of using these missions together to yield an even clearer picture of the changing Arctic.

Arctic freeze slows down

30 November 2016

ESA's CryoSat satellite has found that the Arctic has one of the lowest volumes of sea ice of any November, matching record lows in 2011 and 2012. Early winter growth of ice in the Arctic has been about 10% lower than usual.

Release of reprocessed CryoSat Ocean Data from 2010-2015: Data access and key information

29 November 2016

ESA has recently decided to reprocess all GOP L1 and L2 Geophysical Ocean Products (GOP) from the end of the CryoSat commissioning phase (November 2010) to the installation of the current CryoSat Ocean Processor version (March 2015).

CryoSat Roll Campaigns dataset released

28 November 2016

Since the beginning of the CryoSat mission, ESA has supervised several roll campaigns during which the satellite rolls left and right in orbit in order to perform end-to-end calibration of the interferometer over the ocean. All of the SARin data (FBR, L1B, L2I, L2) acquired during these roll campaigns have now been made available to all users.

CryoSat calibration campaign on 24 November 2016 - Product unavailability

21 November 2016

To guarantee that the quality of the CryoSat products are always at their best, a number of calibrations are applied to its measurements which also take into consideration the ageing of the satellite's main payload instrument, SIRAL.
