Short summary
A new freeze–thaw (FT) Earth system data record (ESDR) was developed from satellite passive microwave remote sensing that quantifies the daily landscape frozen or non-frozen status over a 25 km resolution global grid and 1979–2014 record. The FT-ESDR shows favorable accuracy and performance, enabling new studies of climate change and frozen season impacts on surface water mobility and ecosystem processes.
