Record #125037:

Global sea ice coverage / Claire L. Parkinson, Per Gloersen.

Title: Global sea ice coverage / Claire L. Parkinson, Per Gloersen.
Author(s): Parkinson, Claire L.
Gloersen, Per.
Date: 1993.
Publisher: Cambridge: Cambridge University Press
In: Atlas of satellite observations related to global change. (1993.),
Abstract: Reviews methods of acquiring satellite imagery. Data derived from this have provided ability to determine global sea-ice distributions and approximate ice concentrations on routine basis, with frequency of every few days and spatial resolution of 30 km. Thus, seasonal cycle and inter-annual variations can be examined in regions with no in situ observations, and changes in sea-ice cover can be monitored easily. Large-scale passive microwave data are complemented by data of much finer resolution from visible, infrared, and active microwave sensors, which can be used to validate passive microwave data and to examine individual regions in detail. Data availability: ESMR, SMMR and SSMI data sets from National Snow and Ice Data Center, Boulder, CO 80309, USA; passive microwave data from Earth Observing System (EOS) data and information system (EOSDIS)
