Near-Real-Time SSMIS EASE-Grid Daily Global Ice Concentration and Snow Extent V005

Version 005
  • Abstract
    Data for the Near-Real-Time SSMIS EASE-Grid Daily Global Ice Concentration and Snow Extent product are provided in two 25-km grids, in an azimuthal, equal area projection (the NSIDC SL and NL EASE-Grids).
  • Purpose
    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.
  • Version Description
    Version 5 of the NISE product uses brightness temperatures from the DMSP F18 satellite.
