The links below take you to data sets where you can order data directly from NSIDC, the Physical Oceanography DAAC (PO.DAAC), the Brigham Young University (BYU), or the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Near-Real-Time Products.
Click on the thumbnails below each product title to view larger images and descriptions. These are just a few examples of Arctic, Antarctic, and global scatterometry images from each data product. They do not necessarily represent the complete set of regions and images available from each product.
NSIDC provides sea ice extent for the Arctic and Antarctic, produced from daily-averaged QuikSCAT sigma-0 measurements.
