Landfast Sea Ice Data from 1953 to 1998 Now Available

Landfast sea ice is sea ice that is anchored to the shore or ocean bottom, typically over shallow ocean shelves at continental margins; it is defined by the fact that it does not move with the winds or currents. This data set, Landfast Ice 1953-1998, contains monthly mean concentrations of fast ice for the Arctic Ocean from both the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute (AARI) and the Canadian Ice Services (CIS) sources. To access the data and learn more about it, see the Arctic Landfast Sea Ice 1953-1998 Web page.
