Plenty of related along the ESS-Laptev fast ice edge.

Perhaps it is fixed now

My first link leads to the NetCDF files, but if you click through my second link to the AMSR2 images I can still only access the SSMIS ones. The "Ice-Conc-Amsr" product menu option doesn't currently exist as far as I can tell.

If you have panoply installed you can plot from the .nc file. E.g. here's one from from ice_conc_nh_polstere-100_amsr2_201703181200.nc (yesterday) with the scale set to show maximum contrast in the range 88-100% (i.e. everything under 88% is dark blue)...

I do have Panoply installed, so sure. I've even been beta testing some improvements. Nonetheless it does still seem as though the OSI-SAF web site is somewhat broken in the AMSR2 department.

In case anybody wonders: second day without the usual data update from Uni Hamburg.

I'd noticed that too Wipneus!

Meanwhile OSI-SAF tell me:

Concerning the ice type product, there is as you point out a systematic problem that gives multi-year ice in some young ice areas, and we are working on improving that.

and

Concerning the new AMSR2 product, we will provide a quicklook archive of product images as for SSMIS. This should be available in a couple of weeks.
