Dear Colleague,

The National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC) is pleased to announce the release of the High Mountain Asia ASCAT Freeze/Thaw/Melt Status, 2009-2017 data set. This data set contains bulk landscape frozen or thawed status over seasonally frozen land as well as snowmelt status over glacierized areas for the High Mountain Asia region. These data are derived from vertically polarized (V-pol) C-band (5.255 GHz) backscatter measurements acquired by the Advanced Scatterometer (ASCAT) on EUMETSAT Metop-A and Metop-B satellites and are posted on Earth-fixed 4.45 km grids. 

Access to the data and documentation is provided on the data set web page at NSIDC DAAC: https://nsidc.org/data/hma_freezethawmelt_ASCAT
