NOAA/NSIDC Climate Data Record of Passive Microwave Sea Ice Concentration
Entry ID: G02202

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set provides a Climate Data Record (CDR) of sea ice concentration from passive microwave data. It provides a consistent, daily and monthly time series of sea ice concentrations from 09 July 1987 through through most recent processing for both the north and south polar regions on a 25 km x 25 km grid. The NOAA/NSIDC CDR is based on the recommendations from the National Research Council ... View entire text
