Automatic Sea Ice Analysis

The product is produced without human interaction and come with no warranty. Please contact Frode Dinessen (froded@met.no) for more information.

This is an automatic generated sea ice concentration product based on satellite data from AMSR2 and Sentinel-1, The AMSR2 Passive Micro Wave (PMW) satellte data provides sea ice concentration at a spatial resolution of approxomently 5km. The Sentinel-1 Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data have a pixel spacing of 40x40 meter where each pixel is classified into ice/water. From this the concentration is derived from the fraction of ice within an area of 1x1km. The two concentration products are then merged in to a sea ice concentration product with 1x1 km spatial resolution. The product is updated daily at approximately 12:00 UTC and utilizes the latest satellite data downloaded at MET Norway.
