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

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Daily ice motion vectors are computed from a wide variety of sensors ranging from passive microwave radiometers, such as the Scanning Multichannel Microwave Radiometer (SMMR), to International Arctic Buoy Programme (IABP) buoy data. Daily gridded fields combine data from all sensors, from November 1978 through December 2012. Grids extend from 48.4° N to 90° N, and from 53.2° S to 90° S. Mean ... View entire text
