  • Operational processing for winter season 2020/2021 has started
  • CS2SMOS product version v203 replaces v202, see documentation
  •  (warning) CryoSat-2 NRT data is currently degraged (see blog post).

Abstract

The SMOS & CryoSat-2 Sea Ice Data Product Processing and Dissemination Service (CS2SMOS-PDS) ensures the automated and continuous operational generation of the SMOS and the merged CryoSat-2/SMOS Sea Ice Thickness products.

Data access

Daily SMOS and weekly merged CryoSat-2/SMOS sea ice thickness data can be downloaded via FTP through a Web browser, a FTP client (e.g. FileZilla) or command line. The access is anomymous.

Get data via AWI FTP

Alternatively, data can be downloaded from the ESA SMOS Dissemination server by ftps and https:

Get data via ESA FTPS and https

Info

Due to melting season, the SMOS and CryoSat-2 data processing and dissemination is stopped between May and September.
