Near-Real-Time SSM/I-SSMIS EASE-Grid Daily Global Ice Concentration and Snow Extent V004

Metadata Updated: June 4, 2024

The Near-real-time Ice and Snow Extent (NISE) data set provides daily, global maps of sea ice concentrations and snow extent. These data are not suitable for time series, anomalies, or trends analyses. They are meant to provide a best estimate of current ice and snow conditions based on information and algorithms available at the time the data are acquired. Near-real-time products are not intended for operational use in assessing sea ice conditions for navigation.

This NISE Version 4 product contains DMSP-F17, SSMIS-derived sea ice concentrations and snow extents derived from the Special Sensor Microwave Imager/Sounder (SSMIS) aboard the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) F17 satellite. For DMSP-F16, SSMIS-derived data, see NISE Version 3. For DMSP-F18, SSMIS-derived data, see NISE Version 5. For the older, DMSP-F13, Special Sensor Microwave Imager (SSMI) derived data, see NISE Version 2.
