The Remote Sensing Systems team has updated the Cross-Calibrated Multi-Platform (CCMP) gridded surface vector winds dataset from July 2015-May 2016. Ocean buoy data necessary for processing underwent rigorous quality control prior to this batch of processing, which caused a delay in our proposed schedule. In the future, we intend to process CCMP bi-annually in January and July. Since CCMP uses the ERA-interim wind field as a background, we are limited in how close to the present we can process. Currently, ERA-Int is updated through May, thus CCMP is only available through May. For data access and more information on the CCMP dataset please visit http://www.remss.com/measurements/ccmp.
