Summary:Data depicts monthly averages of sea-ice concentration in the modern polar oceans. Averages were derived from the Scanning Multichannel Microwave Radiometer and Special Sensor Microwave/Imager instruments aboard satellites of the U.S. Air Force Defense Meteorological Satellite Program from 1978 through 1992. Data are provided as 8-bit images using the Hierarchical Data Format developed by the National Center for Supercomputing Applications.
Target Audience:Earth and climate scientists.
