NCEP Ice Concentration (MODIS Ancillary Data)

Metadata Updated: August 9, 2018

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.
