MODIS/Aqua Sea Ice Extent 5-Min L2 Swath 1km V061

Metadata Updated: May 6, 2024

This global Level-2 (L2) product provides daily sea ice extent and ice surface temperature. The data are derived from Level-1B radiances acquired by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on board the Aqua satellite. Each data granule contains 5 minutes of swath data observed at a resolution of 1000 m.

The terms "Version 61" and "Collection 6.1" are used interchangeably in reference to this release of MODIS data.
