CryoSat-2 Sea Ice Freeboard, Thickness, and Snow Depth Quick Look, Version 1

Metadata Updated: December 6, 2023

This data set contains sea ice thickness and other derived geophysical parameters measured over the Arctic sea ice cover. The data are primarily based on ESA's CryoSat-2 Level-1B SAR/SarIn Baseline B data products for March 2014 and March 2015. Ancillary data include snow depth, snow density, sea ice concentration, sea ice freeboard, and sea ice roughness. This quick look product is experimental and designed to aid in seasonal sea ice forecasting and other time-sensitive projects. The data were collected as part of Operation IceBridge funded campaigns.

Note: This data set is the Quick Look counterpart to the CryoSat-2 Level-4 Sea Ice Elevation, Freeboard, and Thickness data set.
