Introduction to user requirement survey


In 2014, the first version of the ESA CCI sea ice concentration (SIC) and sea ice thickness (SIT) datasets were produced based on algorithm intercomparison studies. We would like to invite the users of these data to participate in the following survey. We are also working towards a Sea Ice Drift (SID) data record, and would like to ask you if (and how) such data could be useful to you.





The SIC dataset includes:

- retrieval uncertainties

- status flag

- latitude, longitude 


Grid: 25km x 25km EASE2 grid

Coverage: daily, year round, both hemispheres.


The SIT dataset includes:

- freeboard from Envisat RA from 2003-2012

- derived sea ice thickness

- number of measurements

- latitude, longitude


Grid: 100km x 100km EASE2 grid

Coverage: monthly, October-March, Arctic Ocean.


The SIC and SIT datasets are available for downloading from the Integrated Climate Data Center (ICDC):


Users of the datasets are invited to participate in the survey by filling in the Questionnaire below:  


The results of the survey will be available under "Public Documents"
