The NSIDC Web site and data services are currently having intermittent problems and may be unavailable. We are working to restore these services as soon as possible and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please contact NSIDC User Services for assistance.
On Wednesdays from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (USA Mountain Time), AMSR-E, Aquarius, IceBridge, ICESat/GLAS, MODIS, and NISE data are normally unavailable for ordering due to system maintenance. However, on the first Wednesday of each month, these data will be unavailable for ordering from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (USA Mountain Time).
You can download science data files directly from the Data Pool FTP site. The site displays a typical tree structure of the data, where you can navigate to the data you want. Please note the Data Pool limits you to a maximum of 10 open FTP sessions at any given time.
See the Data Pool Insert Files page for an explanation of files that list daily additions to the Data Pool.
