30-May-19: NRT Service Suspended during Arctic summer (May-Sept).
Note that sea ice thickness cannot be accurately measured from CryoSat during the Arctic summer period (May-Sept), due to the formation of melt ponds on the sea ice surface. These ponds interfere with the radar signal and measurement method.
