Dear colleagues,

we would like to draw your attention to a new sea ice thickness product 
<https://icdc.zmaw.de/l3c_smos_sit.html?&L=1> derived from SMOS 
brightness temperatures. A video 
<http://vis.klimacampus.de/2362+M5353fbb2ad4.html?&L=1> provides a quick 
overview. The SMOSIce algorithm is described in references [1] and [2].

Feedback is very welcome! Thanks!
