This page lists the Sea Ice Prediction Network target data products currently available. Data sets suitable for both hindcast evaluations and seasonal forecasting are listed. Near Real Time data sets are listed at the top of each section. If you are interested in contributing your data to the list of Sea Ice Prediction Network data sets, please Email: Julienne Stroeve, NSIDC (Project PI / NSF PI).
ANISTIAMO Project. Ice thickness, ice concentration, and ice drift data for the Barents and Kara seas. Ice thickness product based on Topaz-4 ice model data, AMSR2 brightness temperature, SAR data, and air temperatures from European Center for Medium range Weather Forecasting (ECMWF). Daily sea ice drift computed from SAR data. Daily sea ice concentration from AMSR2 at 10 km spatial resolution. Registration required for data download.
