Dear Cryolist members,

I would like to draw you attention to a new dataset of CryoSat-2 Arctic 
freeboard and thickness. Data is currently available from January 2011 
to March 2013 and contains radar freeboard from a CryoSat-2 level-2 
processor developed at the Alfred Wegener Institute, auxiliary datasets 
(snow depth, ice & snow density etc.) and ice thickness with associated 
uncertainties. The full dataset (EASE grid) can be downloaded here:

http://mep-datasrv1.awi.de/download/cryosat2.zip

A documentation and quickview plots are available at 
http://www.meereisportal.de/cryosat. Future updates and revisions of the 
dataset will also be anounced on this website, which is currently under 
development.

Please be advised that this dataset should not be treated as a final and 
fully validated product. Future revisions are likely with new data 
releases from ESA and better snow parametrizations. User feedback is 
very welcome (stefan.hendricks at awi.de).
