NISE_2

Near Real-Time SSM/I EASE-Grid Daily Global Ice Concentration and Snow Extent V002

Version 2
  • Abstract
    Data for the Near Real-Time SSM/I 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 NISE data are appropriate for investigations requiring global, daily, near real-time snow extent and sea ice concentrations. The 25-km grid size limits its use to applications requiring relatively coarse-scale spatial resolution. Because of ongoing algorithm updates, the data are not intended for time-series analysis.
  • Version Description
    Version 2 of the NISE product incorporates improvements to the processing stream and a new land/water/permanent-ice mask.
