Abstract:
<strong>Note:</strong> The Russian chart component of this product has been replaced and updated by <a href="http://nsidc.org/data/g02176.html">Sea Ice Charts of the Russian Arctic in Gridded Format, 1933-2006</a> and the U.S chart component by <a href="http://nsidc.org/data/g02172.html">National Ice Center Arctic Sea Ice Charts and Climatologies in Gridded Format</a>. The EWG Joint U.S.-Russian Arctic Sea Ice Atlas was developed by U.S. and Russian partners. The Atlas contains four main sections: an introduction to Arctic sea ice, a section that describes primary sea ice data sets and analysis methods, a section with a graphical atlas containing two-dimensional color coded ice charts and graphical products, and an Arctic sea ice data section.
