The new version of the melting occurrence derived from SMOS over Antarctica is now available. This dataset includes the daily melted/not melted status for each pixel between April 2010 to March 2019. The analysis shows that 1.4 GHz provides additional information on melt occurrence and on the location of the water in the snowpack compared to the higher-frequencies observations.
