Polar Pathfinder Daily 25 km EASE-Grid Sea Ice Motion Vectors
Entry ID: NSIDC-0116


Summary
Abstract: This data set provides daily sea ice motion vectors derived from a wide variety of sensors in both gridded and non-gridded (raw) files. For the gridded data, weekly and monthly mean fields are also provided for the entire time series���from November 1978 through May 2015. Browse images of these mean fields are also available.
