Update: ATLAS/ICESat-2 resumes science data collection

On 4 April, 2022, at approximately 14:12 UTC, the ICESat-2 satellite experienced an anomaly and entered into Safe Mode.  No science data were recorded while the satellite was in Safe Mode.  ICESat-2 resumed collection of science data on 16 April 2022.  All data sets will exhibit a gap in coverage within the temporal range 4 April 2022 to 16 April 2022.  The expedited latency “quick look” data sets, which are part of the Land, Atmosphere Near real-time Capability for EOS (LANCE) program, are once again available.  

Access to the data sets and documentation is provided through the data collection web page at the NSIDC DAAC:  https:/nsidc.org/data/icesat-2/data-sets
