Summary
Abstract: At a spatial resolution of 25 km and offering complete daily coverage of Antarctica, the DMSP SSM/I is a key source of information on both sea-ice concentration and extent. Data have been both acquired by the TeraScan system on the Aurora Australis and obtained in processed form (mapped to a polar stereographic projection) from the US National Snow and Ice Data Center (http://www.nsidc.org/data/nsidc-0002.html).
