Group: Summary

   The Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer - Earth Observing System (AMSR-E) 
   instrument on the NASA Earth Observing System (EOS) Aqua satellite provides 
   global passive microwave measurements of land, ocean, and atmospheric 
   variables for the investigation of water and energy cycles.

   This Level-3 gridded product (AE_SID) includes sea ice speed and direction 
   generated by applying the Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) wavelet transform 
   algorithm to AMSR-E brightness temperatures. Daily drift data are averaged 
   over five-day intervals and are mapped to a polar stereographic grid at 6.25 
   km spatial resolution. Drift parameters sea ice speed and direction were 
   determined using the 89 GHz Horizontal (H) channel of the AMSR-E L3 6.25 km 
   brightness temperature product. Data are stored in HDF-EOS format and are 
   available from 01 June 2011 to 3 October 2011 via FTP.
