The GRIB format of Global Sea Ice products from OSI SAF is planned to be discontinued on 5 April 2018.
Thursday, 28 September 2017
The products are Global Sea Ice Concentration, Global Sea Ice Edge and Global Sea Ice Type.
Since end of May 2017, the Global Sea Ice Edge and Global Sea Ice Type products (labelled OSI-402-c and OSI-403-c respectively) are provided in netCDF3 format via EUMETCast. The Global Sea Ice Concentration product (labelled OSI-401-b) will be available in netCDF3 via EUMETCast from 5 October 2017.
The EUMETCast channel is 'SAF-Global':
PID: 300 (for Europe and Africa)
Multicast Address: 126.96.36.199
As the GRIB format is planned to be discontinued on 5 April 2018, users are strongly encouraged to use the netCDF format instead of the GRIB one.
Users who are not subscribed to OSI SAF Products via EUMETCast and wish to receive them should register via our Earth Observation Portal (EOP).
