Quality All MODIS/Terra sea ice products are considered validated - stage 1 meaning that accuracy has been estimated using a small number of independent measurements obtained from selected locations and time periods and ground-truth/field program effort. Analysis of the quality of the sea ice data products is an ongoing activity. Specific information on the science quality of the sea ice data products is ... View entire text
