Quality All MODIS/Terra sea ice products are considered validated or at stage 2 meaning that accuracy has been assessed over a widely distributed set of locations and time periods via several ground-truth and validation campaigns. Quality indicators for MODIS sea ice data can be found in the following three places: * AutomaticQualityFlag and the ScienceQualityFlag metadata objects and their ... View entire text
