  • Operational processing for winter season 2019/2020 has started
  • CS2SMOS Product version v202 replaces v200/201, see documentation

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

Info

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