Summary
Abstract: MODIS/Aqua Sea Ice Extent Daily L3 Global 1km EASE-Grid Night (MYD29P1N) data set contains fields for Ice Surface Temperature (IST) and IST Spatial Quality Assessment (QA) in Hierarchical Data Format-Earth Observing System (HDF-EOS) format, along with corresponding metadata. The field Sea Ice by Ice Surface Temperature that is in Version 4 (V004) was removed from Version 5 (V005. MOD29P1N V005, the latest version of the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) data, consists of 954 x 954 km files of 1 km resolution data gridded in the Lambert Azimuth Equal Area map projection. Data are stored in HDF-EOS format, and are available from 4 July 2002 to present via FTP. Data can also be obtained in GeoTIFF format by ordering the data through the Data Pool.

Quality All MODIS/Aqua sea ice products are considered validated or at stage two meaning that accuracy has been assessed over a widely distributed set of locations and time periods via several ground-truth and validation campaigns. Quality indicators for MODIS sea ice data can be found in the following three places: AutomaticQualityFlag and the ScienceQualityFlag metadata objects and their corresponding ... View entire text
