Summary
Abstract: The data comprise images (encapsulated postscript and PNG formats) showing the integrated solar irradiance exposure of sea ice. The exposure value for ice at a given grid point was calculated by computing the motion trajectory of that patch of ice across the autumn/winter season (1-March to 1-November). Daily motion data were obtained from the National Snow and Ice Data Center ... View entire text
