AMSR-E Instrument Failure:
As of 06:58 UTC on 04 October 2011, the AMSR-E instrument on board the Aqua satellite stopped producing data due to a problem with the rotation of its antenna. NASA is currently working with the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) to assess the condition of the AMSR-E instrument and consider future steps. As more information becomes available, NSIDC will post updates via RSS news feed and inform registered AMSR-E users via email. For more information or to register as an AMSR-E data user, please contact NSIDC User Services.
On Wednesdays from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (USA Mountain Time), AMSR-E, 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).
