Do you plan to resume dissemination anytime soon?

when you state "...we are following the same cadence with refined calibration that we use for the MODIS instruments." do you mean that we should expect a delay of several months analogous to MODIS one? We need this info to properly inform the Marine Copernicus users.
There are two things that are required for the refined processing:
1) The availability of the refined ancillary data
2) The monthly calibration updates
The MERRA-2 reanalysis updates are done on a monthly basis, with each months data becoming available approximately between the 15th and 20th of the next month (e.g. October 2022 will be released between the 15th and 20th of Nov 2022).
The monthly calibration updates are (typically) accomplished before the MERRA2 release. So, at a minimum, refined data will be at least 2 weeks behind NRT. Since an entire month (typically) is processed at a time, it can be upward of two months lag (if you're interested in data from early in the month and the MERRA2 data are released later in the month).
Occasionally, Murphy's Law is in play, so there is no guarantee that the data will be at most 2 months behind NRT.
