"New HadISST v1.1 dataset released to BADC users"

Posted by: CEDA_site Admin in Met Office data 13 years, 11 months ago

The Met Office has now stopped updating GISST/GIICE datasets.

HadISST 1.1 is the replacement product provided by the Hadley Centre at the The Met Office.
It contains monthly long-term global gridded SST and sea ice analysis (1870 to present).

This dataset was available from the Met Office as an historical dataset and is now being made 
operational (i.e. updated every month). HadISST has a different sea-ice analysis from GISST; as 
a consequence of this, the data will not be available until the 2nd of the month, 
2 months afterwards (e.g. January's data will become available in March).

To find out more about this new dataset and access restrictions, please read through the 
HadIsst dataset web pages.

"GISST/GICE datasets ended - MOHMATN4 and MOHSST6 still updated"

Posted by: CEDA_site Admin in Met Office data 13 years, 11 months ago

The Met Office had planned to stop updating GISST/GIICE datasets in May 2003.
However, some problems were encountered in producing the GISST updates from March 2003.

"The current route for producing GISST uses the version 1 of the Reynolds optimally 
interpolated SSTs as background field in some areas, and these fields are no longer 
being produced. We (The Met Office) could switch to using version 2, but this would 
produce some differences in the result, particularly for areas close to sea-ice."

After careful consideration, the Met Office has decided to stop updating the GISST/GICE 
datasets. The last update is therefore for February 2003.

The Met Office has a replacement product, called HadISST, which has been available 
from the Met Office as an historical dataset and is now being made operational 
(i.e. updated every month). HadISST has a different sea-ice analysis from GISST; as 
a consequence of this, the data will not be available until the 2nd of the month, 
2 months afterwards (e.g. January's data will become available in March).

The BADC is now working on making this replacement dataset available to registered users.
Users will be informed in due course.

We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause in the meantime.

Temporary Disruption to BADC FTP service on Friday 11th April 2003 from 2pm
============================================================================


The power supply to selected BADC computers is being checked. This will result 
in the disruption of BADC FTP services from 2pm on Friday 11th April for about 
an hour.

Data will still be available for download via the web.

We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.
