Data Used:
Nimbus-7 and DMSP/SMMR and SSM/I/Sea Ice Concentrations from Nimbus-7 SMMR and DMSP SSM/I Passive Microwave Data also referred to as: Sea Ice Concentrations
This data set is generated from brightness temperature data derived from Nimbus-7 Scanning Multichannel Microwave Radiometer (SMMR) and Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) -F8, -F11 and -F13 Special Sensor Microwave/Imager (SSM/I) radiances at a grid cell size of 25 x 25 km. The data are provided in the polar stereographic projection.
Note: While we identify the data sets used in these visualizations, we do not store any further details nor the data sets themselves on our site.
