Summary
Abstract: The Near-Real-Time SSM/I-SSMIS EASE-Grid Daily Global Ice Concentration and Snow Extent product (Near-real-time Ice and Snow Extent, NISE) provides daily, global near-real-time maps of sea ice concentrations and snow extent. The National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) creates the current NISE product using passive microwave data from the Special Sensor Microwave Imager/Sounder (SSMIS) on board ... View entire text
