Summary
Abstract: This data set provides atmospheric fields which can be used as forcing
fields for driving dynamic/thermodynamic sea ice models of the
Arctic Ocean.

Geostrophic winds are calculated from the twice daily IABP sea-level
pressures blended with the daily NCAR reanalysis
sea level pressures. The thermal forcing is calculated based on
Parkinson and Washington(1979) using IABP-POLES surface air
