NSIDC would like to announce a change to data access for the Near-Real-Time SSM/I-SSMIS EASE-Grid Daily Global Ice Concentration and Snow Extent, Version 4 (NISE) data set. Data access through our primary portal will remain the same at ftp://n5eil01u.ecs.nsidc.org/SAN/OTHR/NISE.004. We will be removing the secondary access point at ftp://firstname.lastname@example.org beginning 31 May 2014. We expect that this will only affect a small number of data users. Documentation for the data set can be accessed from the product’s catalog page. Please contact NSIDC user services at email@example.com if you have concerns or further questions.
