Daily updates return for Greenland Today, end for Antarctica Today

Daily melt extent mapping for Greenland Ice Sheet has resumed, while mapping for the Antarctic Ice Sheet has suspended for its winter season. Calibration of yearly melt detection requires analysis of the springtime snow conditions by a separate program. See our March 18, 2013 post for more discussion of melt calibration. A full analysis for the 2021-2022 melt season on the Antarctic Ice Sheet will be coming soon.

Daily image updates will resume for the Antarctic Ice sheet in October 2022.
