MASIE - Multisensor Analyzed Sea Ice Extent - Northern Hemisphere (MASIE-NH)
NOTICE: Daily MASIE data processing has resumed, however, there are two gaps in the time series that we are still working to address due to missing input data: 13 November 2014 through 01 December 2014 and 24 February 2015 to 19 April 2015. When we have received those data, we will back fill the MASIE data, however NSIDC has no estimated date for when we will receive them. Contact NSIDC User Services with any questions.
