Row Type Variable Name Attribute Name Data Type Value
attribute NC_GLOBAL _CoordSysBuilder String ucar.nc2.dataset.conv.CF1Convention
attribute NC_GLOBAL acknowledgment String Following visits in 2009 to NSIDC and NIC by Rear Admiral David Titley, at the time Commander Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Command (CNMOC), the concept for a collaborative MASIE product was developed through further discussions between NIC's Chief Scientist Pablo Clemente-Colón and NSIDC's NOAA Liaison Florence Fetterer. Product development objectives included wider dissemination of information from NIC products and more accurate daily sea ice edge position views for NSIDC's user base. Commander Denise M. Kruse, NIC's Director at the time, endorsed the collaboration that made MAISE possible. Sean Helfrich of NIC leads work on the IMS and helped shaped MASIE development. The MASIE product team at NSIDC included Matt Savoie for algorithm and code development, Stephen Truex and Ann Windnagel for Web site development, Lisa Ballagh for assistance with shapefiles, and Walter Meier as science advisor. Funding for MASIE development was provided by NIC and the US Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVO). We are currently seeking funding for its ongoing maintenance and further development. Distribution of the data set from NSIDC is supported by the NOAA@NSIDC Team with funding from NOAA's National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS) and the National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC).

attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String The Multisensor Analyzed Sea Ice Extent – Northern Hemisphere (MASIE-NH) products provide measurements of daily sea ice extent and sea ice edge boundary for the Northern Hemisphere and 16 Arctic regions. The MASIE-NH imagery are provided at a nominal 4 km resolution. The input data comes from the 4 km Interactive Multisensor Snow and Ice Mapping System (IMS) snow and ice product produced by the National Ice Center (NIC). NIC utilizes visible imagery, passive microwave data, and NIC weekly analysis products to create their data product. More data, including MASIE-NH products distributed in a number of formats including ASCII text, GeoTIFF, PNG, shapefiles, and Google Earth files, are available from the MASIE website.
