  • This dataset provides a Climate Data Record of Sea Ice Thickness for the NH polar region, derived from the SIRAL (SAR Interferometer Radar ALtimeter) instrument on the CryoSat-2 satellite. This product was generated in the context of the ESA Climate Change Initiative Programme (ESA CCI) by the Sea Ice CCI (Sea_Ice_cci) project. It provides daily sea ice thickness data for the months October to April annually on the satellite measurement grid (Level 2P) at the full sensor resolution for the period November 2010 to April 2017.

  • This dataset provides a Climate Data Record of Sea Ice Thickness for the SH polar region, derived from the SIRAL (SAR Interferometer Radar ALtimeter) instrument on the CryoSat-2 satellite. This product was generated in the context of the ESA Climate Change Initiative Programme (ESA CCI) by the Sea Ice CCI (Sea_Ice_cci) project. It provides daily sea ice thickness data on the satellite measurement grid (Level 2P) at the full sensor resolution for the period November 2010 to April 2017. Note, the southern hemisphere sea ice thickness dataset is an experimental climate data record, as the algorithm does not properly considers the impact of the complex snow morphology in the freeboard retrieval. Sea ice thickness is provided for all months but needs to be considered biased high in areas with high snow depth and during the southern summer months. Please consult the Product User Guide (PUG) for more information.

  • The CO2_SCI_BESD dataset comprises level 2, column-averaged dry-air mole fractions (mixing ratios) of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the SCanning Imaging Absorption spectroMeter for Atmospheric CHartographY (SCIAMACHY) instrument on board the European Space Agency's (ESA's) environmental research satellite ENVISAT. It has been produced using the Bremen Optimal Estimation DOAS (BESD) algorithm, by the ESA Greenhouse Gases Climate Change Initiative (GHG_cci) project. The Bremen Optimal Estimation DOAS (BESD) algorithm is a full physics algorithm which uses measurements in the O2-A absorption band to retrieve scattering information about clouds and aerosols. This is the Greenhouse Gases CCI baseline algorithm for deriving SCIAMACHY XCO2 data. A product has also been generated from the SCIAMACHY data using an alternative algorithm: the WFMD algorithm. It is advised that users who aren't sure whether to use the baseline or alternative product use this BESD product. For more information regarding the differences between baseline and alternative algorithms please see the Greenhouse Gases CCI data products webpage. For further information on the product, including details of the BESD algorithm and the SCIAMACHY instrument, please see the associated product user guide (PUG) or the Algorithm Theoretical Basis Documents.

  • This dataset provides a Climate Data Record of Sea Ice Thickness for the southern hemisphere polar region, derived from the RA-2 (Radar Altimeter -2) instrument on the Envisat satellite. This product was generated in the context of the ESA Climate Change Initiative Programme (ESA CCI) by the Sea Ice CCI (Sea_Ice_cci) project. It provides daily sea ice thickness data on the satellite measurement grid (Level 2P) at the full sensor resolution for the period October 2002 to March 2012. Note, the southern hemisphere sea ice thickness dataset is an experimental climate data record, as the algorithm does not properly considers the impact of the complex snow morphology in the freeboard retrieval. Sea ice thickness is provided for all months but needs to be considered biased high in areas with high snow depth and during the southern summer months.
