Global Sea Ice Concentration interim climate data record, release 3Operational Climate product
The sea-ice concentration Interim Climate Data Record covering the northern and southern hemispheres. Associated to the Climate Data Record OSI-450-a.
L3/L4 daily files, and monthly average files, and monthly sea-ice extent/area indicator.
This product has two types of files; the nominal ICDR files with latency of 16 days, and so-called fast-track ICDR files with latency of 2 days, the latest being only available on the FTP server. The fast-track ICDR files for day D are replaced by the nominal ICDR files for the same day D when the nominal are produced at day D+16.
Includes per-grid cell uncertainties.
Fully consistent with OSI-450-a, to ensure homogeneity.
Monthly averaged fractional ice cover are also distributed, as well as monthly sea-ice extent/area indicator.
