Summary
Abstract: The NCEP global Ice Concentration product is produced once daily from
the Special Sensor Microwave/Imager (SSMI) at 0.5 degree latitude and
longitude resolution.

The detection of sea-ice by passive microwave measurements utilizes
low frequency measurements to detect surface emissivity of the ocean
surface. Sea-ice possesses a higher emissivity than water, and hence,
the two can be separated. False signatures due to dense clouds and
precipitation are possible.
