The International Ice Patrol (IIP) Iceberg Sightings Database now contains 2010 and 2011 data.
This data set, Arctic Landfast Sea Ice 1953-1998, contains monthly mean concentrations of fast ice for the Arctic Ocean.
While the content remains the same, the Sea Ice Index Web site has been functionally redesigned so that it is easier to find and compare earlier years of Sea Ice Index data or check up on trends and anomalies in sea ice extent.
NOAA@NSIDC has archived and made SCICEX 2000 and 2003 Expendable Conductivity, Temperature, and Depth (XCTD) data available from the SCICEX Web site.
The National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) had humble beginnings when the U.S. World Data Center (WDC) for Glaciology moved to Boulder, Colorado in 1976.
NOAA@NSIDC is pleased to announce that the Sea Ice Index data archive now has daily as well as monthly ice extent numbers for the northern and southern hemispheres, and the product documentation has also been overhauled.
The Global Lake and River Ice Phenology database has seasonal freeze-up and breakup dates as well as other descriptive ice information for 865 lakes and rivers in twelve Northern Hemisphere countries.
In cooperation with the World Glacier Monitoring Service (WGMS), NOAA@NSIDC has released an updated version of the World Glacier Inventory (WGI).
To help promote awareness of glacier recession and to support the Roger G. Barry Resource Office for Cryospheric Studies (ROCS), ROCS has created an Adopt-a-Glacier fundraising project.
The SCICEX Web site has been improved. The new site includes links to data access locations, science meeting notes and presentations, and history and background of the program.
