Data Announcement

User notice: Retiring Near-Real-Time DMSP SSM/I-SSMIS Pathfinder Daily EASE-Grid Brightness Temperatures, Version 2

The Near-Real-Time DMSP SSM/I-SSMIS Pathfinder Daily EASE-Grid Brightness Temperatures, Version 2 data set will be retired from the NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC) on 31 August 2022. Access to the data will no longer be available, but the data set documentation will remain available for future reference. Alternatively, we recommend the MEaSUREs Calibrated Enhanced-Resolution Passive Microwave Daily EASE-Grid 2.0 Brightness Temperature ESDR data set, which offers improvements in data format, grid, and includes data for all remaining SSMIS sensors.
