ICESat-2 L4 Monthly Gridded Sea Ice Thickness, Version 3
Data set id:
IS2SITMOGR4
DOI: 10.5067/ZCSU8Y5U1BQW
This is the most recent version of these data.
Version Summary
Version 3 of this data set uses freeboard from ATLAS/ICESat-2 L3A Sea Ice Freeboard (ATL10) Version 6. The code has minor bug fixes and updates, as well as additional variables.

Overview

This data set reports monthly, gridded winter sea ice thickness across the Arctic Ocean. Sea ice thickness is estimated using ATLAS/ICESat-2 L3A Sea Ice Freeboard (ATL10) Version 6 data and NASA Eulerian Snow On Sea Ice Model (NESOSIM) snow loading.
