NOAA/NSIDC Climate Data Record of Passive Microwave Sea Ice Concentration
Entry ID: G02202


Summary
Abstract: Note: This CDR data set is dependent on two data sets produced at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. Therefore, this data set cannot be updated until the NASA data sets have been updated. There is no precise update schedule for those data sets; they are processed as time and money permits; so we do not have an update schedule for this CDR data set. When the data arrive from NASA, we process the ... View entire text
