NOAA@NSIDC is pleased to announce the release of a 1 km gridded MASIE sea ice product in addition to the 4 km version. The Multisensor Analyzed Sea Ice Extent (MASIE) helps to give the best available Arctic-wide answer to the question: Where is Arctic sea ice now? MASIE products provide measurements of daily sea ice coverage for the Northern Hemisphere and 16 Arctic regions in a polar stereographic projection in 4 km grid cells and now in 1 km grid cells as well. In addition, a full Northern Hemisphere time series graph has been added to the MASIE Time Series Plots Web page. MASIE repackages the National Ice Center’s IMS product. The IMS product is archived with and distributed by NOAA@NSIDC, in cooperation with NIC. For more information and to access the new data, visit the MASIE Web site.
