Global Daily Sea Ice Concentration Reprocessing Data Set for 1978-2007 from the EUMETSAT Ocean and Sea Ice Satellite Application Facility (NCEI Accession 0068294)

Metadata Updated: June 25, 2021

These data constitute the reprocessed sea ice concentration data set from the EUMETSAT Ocean and Sea Ice Satellite Application Facility (OSI SAF), covering the period from 1978-2007, with data from the Scanning Multichannel Microwave Radiometer (SMMR) and the Special Sensor Microwave/Imager (SSM/I). The data set provides daily, global coverage at 10 km and 12.5 km spatial resolution. Ice concentration is computed from atmospherically corrected brightness temperatures, using a combination of state-of-the-art algorithms and dynamic tie-points. The data set includes uncertainty estimates for each grid cell (error estimates). Version 1 of the data set was released in early 2010.
