Missing sector in sea ice products using AMSR-2 data


The AMSR-2 sea ice concentration (OSI-408) and LR sea ice drift product (OSI-405) distributed on 25th November have a large sector of missing data due to outage of AMSR-2 data from the provider JAXA. Todays product is nominal, as the AMSR-2 data stream came back to nominal yesterday.

For the multi sensor LR sea ice drift product, only the southern hemisphere product is affected, as AMSR-2 is the only sensor used during summer time.
