Polaris Retired

The Polaris Search and Order interface was decommissioned. However, a new tool, NSIDC PyRS, which is a Python reformatting and subsetting tool, now serves three data sets previously served by Polaris:

  • Sea Ice Concentrations from Nimbus-7 SMMR and DMSP SSM/I-SSMIS Passive Microwave Data (NSIDC-0051)
  • Near-Real-Time DMSP SSMIS Daily Polar Gridded Sea Ice Concentrations (NSIDC-0081)
  • Snow Data Assimilation System (SNODAS) Data Products at NSIDC

You can access this tool from the Subsetting and Reformatting with the NSIDC PyRS Tool Web page.

If you need assistance accessing or using NSIDC data, please contact NSIDC User Services at nsidc@nsidc.org.
