The Sea Ice_cci project has a new website at

The page outlines the project’s new objectives to be delivered during the current phase of the CCI programme while providing access to key project documents, product descriptions and peer-reviewed papers. 

The new project research objectives include work to:

  • extend the length and improve the spatial resolution of sea ice concentration time series 
  • extend sea ice thickness time series with ERS-1 and -2 missions (early 1990s onwards)
  • get sea-ice cover information from the legacy ESMR Nimbus-5 instrument (1972-1977)
