Lagrangian Snow Distributions for Sea-Ice Applications, Version 1 (NSIDC-0758)
This is the most recent version of these data.
This data set provides daily estimates of snow depth and snow density for snow-on-sea-ice in the Arctic Ocean over a 41-year period using a Lagrangian snow-evolution model forced with NASA’s Modern Era Retrospective-Analysis for Research Applications Version 2 (MERRA-2) and the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) Reanalysis, generation 5 (ERA5).
