Brightness Temperature data products from the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer 2 (AMSR2) onboard the Global Change Observation Mission 1st – Water (GCOM-W1) satellite have recently been released by the Japan… Read more »
NSIDC has been notified of an error in AMSR-E sea ice data products that caused valid data in the Southern Hemisphere to be obscured by a land mask.
Algorithms for AMSR-E sea ice data have been updated, and reprocessing from the beginning of the mission onward is currently underway for these products.
The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) has completed reprocessing of the AMSR-E/Aqua L1A Raw Observation Counts data set to Version 3.
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.
On 28 September 2011, Version 3 (V003) of the AMSR-E/Aqua L1A Raw Observation Counts data set was released by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).
A new data set is available at NSIDC, the Enhanced-Resolution SSM/I and AMSR-E Daily Polar Brightness Temperatures.
NSIDC has released a new sea ice data set, the AMSR-E/Aqua Daily L3 6.25 km Sea Ice Drift Polar Grids.
Both the AMSR-E/Aqua Daily EASE-Grid Brightness Temperatures and AMSR-E/Aqua Daily Global Quarter-Degree Gridded Brightness Temperatures data sets have been updated.
On 02 May 2011, NSIDC will discontinue distribution of Preliminary Level-3 AMSR-E data.
