Dear Cryolist,

Are you using (or thinking about using) the newly available Calibrated, 
Enhanced-Resolution Passive Microwave Brightness Temperatures data?

This long-awaited data set is a complete reprocessing of gridded TBs, 
available from the NSIDC DAAC since July 12 this year:

http://nsidc.org/data/nsidc-0630

Using innovative image reconstruction techniques, the data include all 
channels at conventional, 25 km resolution, and entirely new, 
enhanced-resolution grids at up to 3.125 km (depending on frequency). 
Even better: we used the improved, EASE-Grid 2.0, projections to improve 
and simplify usability with many map projection software packages.
The complete record includes six SSM/I, four SSMIS, SMMR and AMSR-E 
sensors, with many overlap periods that have never before been available 
in gridded form.

If you are using these new data (or wish to investigate the new 
information in it), please consider a contribution to our AGU session:

C013: Breaking the mold: New sensors, enhanced datasets, new tools and 
parameters from satellite passive microwave instruments

Thank you,
