Dear OSI SAF Sea Ice Concentration User,

In regards to our previous message, we came to the following conclusion:

After the interruption in incoming DMSP SSMIS data that took place last Friday, 19th Feb., the input data started to come slowly again since Monday 22nd around 00:27 UTC. However, there were many missing sectors and that led to missing data in the final product.

More importantly, for the SSMIS Ice Concentration product (OSI-401-b), three sensors are used, namely F-16, F-17 and F-18, we found out that F-16 contains corrupted data, and that led to corrupted data in the final product. From now on we will be using only F-17 and F-18.

We have regenerated the products and you can find them on our FTP server and quicklooks following this link.

 

We are sorry for the inconveniences, this may have caused.

 

Best regards,

OSI SAF Team
