MODIS/Aqua Sea Ice Extent and IST Daily L3 Global 4km EASE-Grid Day V005

<p class="notice">A newer version of this data set (Version 6) is available.<br /> <a href="https://nsidc.org/data/myd29e1d/">Go to Version 6</a></p> MODIS/Aqua Sea Ice Extent and IST Daily L3 Global 4km EASE-Grid Day (MYD29E1D) data set contains fields for sea ice by reflectance and Ice Surface Temperature (IST). Each data granule covers the entire globe with two separate arrays of 4501 x 4501 pixels: one for the Arctic and one for the Antarctic. The MODIS sea ice algorithm uses a Normalized Difference Snow Index (NDSI) modified for sea ice to distinguish sea ice from open ocean based on reflective and thermal characteristics.
