Description:

Abstract:

The MODIS/Aqua Sea Ice Extent and IST Daily L3 Global 4km EASE-Grid Day (MYD29E1D) data set contains Northern and Southern Hemisphere daily sea ice extent and ice surface temperature (IST), gridded to a 4 km resolution Equal Area Scalable Earth Grid (EASE-Grid).

Note: New Version 6 sea ice data are available from 04/15/2015 until present. Version 6 reprocessing is proceeding in time order from the beginning of the data record and should be complete near the end of 2015. Once complete, forward processing will continue for both Version 5 and Version 6 for approximately one year, after which Version 5 will be discontinued. See MODIS | V6 Sea Ice Reprocessing for details.
