Arctic and Southern Ocean Sea Ice Concentrations, Version 1

Version 1 eng; usa
  • Abstract
    This data set provides monthly sea ice concentration for the Arctic from 1901 to 1995 and for the Southern Oceans from 1973 to 1990 on a standard 1-degree grid (cylindrical projection) to provide a relatively uniform set of sea ice extent for all longitudes. The data are in ASCII format and are available via FTP.
