Polar Pathfinder Daily 25 km EASE-Grid Sea Ice Motion Vectors, Version 3

Version 3 eng; usa
  • Abstract
    This data set provides daily sea ice motion vectors derived from a wide variety of sensors in both gridded and non-gridded (raw) files. For the gridded data, weekly and monthly mean fields are also provided for the entire time series—from November 1978 through May 2015. Browse images of these mean fields are also available.
