The dataset provides a Climate Data Record of Sea Ice Concentration (SIC) for the polar regions, derived from medium resolution passive microwave satellite data from the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer series (AMSR-E and AMSR-2). It is processed with an algorithm using medium resolution (19 GHz and 37 GHz) imaging channels, and has been gridded at 25km grid spacing. This version of the product is v2.1, which is an extension of the v2.0 Sea_Ice_cci data and has identical data until 2015-12-25.
This product was generated in the context of the ESA Climate Change Initiative Programme (ESA CCI) by the Sea Ice CCI (Sea_Ice_cci) project. The EUMETSAT OSI SAF contributed with access and re-use of part of its processing software and facilities.
A SIC CDR at 50 km grid spacing is also available.
