SEA_ICE_1

NCEP Ice Concentration

Version 1 eng
  • Abstract
    The NCEP global Ice Concentration product is produced once daily from the Special Sensor Microwave/Imager (SSMI) at 0.5 degree latitude and longitude resolution. The detection of sea-ice by passive microwave measurements utilizes low frequency measurements to detect surface emissivity of the ocean surface. Sea-ice possesses a higher emissivity than water, and hence, the two can be separated. False signatures due to dense clouds and precipitation are possible.
