The Shutdown and updating

Just a note on how the US government shutdown affects updated data here. Hopefully all will be fixed when it ends.
  • NOAA SST data isn't getting through, so the SST movies and WebGL trackball daily plots have no October data.
  • The NASA and NOAA websites are down, so there probably won't be a monthly index update for the duration. UAH is out and RSS should be OK.
  • GHCN data is getting through, so TempLS should be OK - may be the only one until HADCRUT comes out. The monthly updates of surface temp should be OK.
  • JAXA is unaffected.

  1. Hi Nick,

    It appears that RSS is affected. From their site:

    "Government Shutdown Affects RSS Data
    The US Government shutdown has stopped delivery of satellite data for SSM/I, SSMIS, and AMSU via NOAA CLASS."

    NSIDC is also affected.
