  • 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 at Level 3C (L3C). 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 gridded on a Lambeth Azimuthal Equal Area grid 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.

  • This dataset provides a Climate Data Record of Sea Ice Thickness for the Northern Hemisphere polar region, derived from the SIRAL (SAR Interferometer Radar ALtimeter) instrument on the CryoSat-2 satellite at Level 3C (L3C). 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 monthly gridded sea ice thickness data on a Lambeth Azimuthal Equal Area grid for the period November 2010 to April 2017. Data are only available for the NH winter months, October - April.

  • The ESA Climate Change Initiative Aerosol project has produced a number of global aerosol Essential Climate Variable (ECV) products from a set of European satellite instruments with different characteristics. This dataset comprises the Level 3 aerosol products from AATSR, using the ADV algorithm, version 2.30. Both daily and monthly gridded products are available For further details about these data products please see the linked documentation.

  • The ESA Climate Change Initiative Aerosol project has produced a number of global aerosol Essential Climate Variable (ECV) products from a set of European satellite instruments with different characteristics. This dataset comprises the Level 3 aerosol products from ATSR-2, using the Swansea University (SU) algorithm, version 4.2. Both daily and monthly gridded products are available.

  • 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 at Level 3C (L3C). 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 monthly gridded sea ice thickness data on a Lambeth Azimuthal Equal Area Projection 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.

  • The Cloud_cci MODIS-Aqua dataset was generated within the Cloud_cci project (http://www.esa-cloud-cci.org) which was funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) as part of the ESA Climate Change Initiative (CCI) programme (Contract No.: 4000109870/13/I-NB). This dataset is one of the 6 datasets generated in Cloud_cci; all of them being based on passive-imager satellite measurements. This dataset is based on MODIS (onboard Aqua) measurements and contains a variety of cloud properties which were derived employing the Community Cloud retrieval for Climate (CC4CL) retrieval system. The core cloud properties contained in the Cloud_cci MODIS-Aqua dataset are cloud mask/fraction, cloud phase, cloud top pressure/height/temperature, cloud optical thickness, cloud effective radius and cloud liquid/ice water path. Spectral cloud albedo is also included as experimental product. Level-3C product files contain monthly averages and histograms of the mentioned cloud properties together with propagated uncertainty measures.

  • The ESA Climate Change Initiative Aerosol project has produced a number of global aerosol Essential Climate Variable (ECV) products from a set of European satellite instruments with different characteristics. This dataset comprises the Level 3 aerosol monthly products from GOMOS, using the AERGOM algorithm, version 2.19 and was produced by BIRA (Belgian Institute for Space Aeronomy). The data are stored as 5 day averages and standard deviations of a range of aerosol variables, on global 2.5 degree x 10 degree latitutude/longitude grids, and in NetCDF format. The horizontal resolution is 0.5km. The variables included are: Stratospheric Aerosol Optical Depth (AOD), Angstrom coefficient, extinction profile.
