NSIDC DAAC Releases Version 6 MODIS Sea Ice Data

The NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC) is pleased to announce that users can now obtain Version 6 (Collection 6) MODIS sea ice data.

The MODIS Version 6 sea ice extent and ice surface temperature algorithms and products are the same as Version 5; however, Version 6 updates to algorithm inputs—in particular, the L1B calibrated radiances, land and water mask, and cloud mask products—have improved the sea ice outputs. For information about forward and reprocessing schedules, see MODIS | V6 Sea Ice Reprocessing.

To obtain Version 6 sea ice data, visit the MODIS | Data Sets Web page.
