Medium Resolution Sea Ice Drift - Metop

Abstract:
Medium Resolution Sea Ice Drift product covers The Northern Hemisphere (NH) above 40 Deg. N. Ice motion vectors with a time span of approximately 24 hours are estimated by a maximum cross-correlation method (MCC) on pairs of satellite images. The ice drift product is based on swath data from the AVHRR instrument onboard the Metop-A satellite. VISible data are used to determine ice motion during summer (MJJA) and Thermal InfraRed data are used from September to April. Valid drift data are only available in cloud free areas, due to cloud opacity of VIS and TIR data.
