Sea Ice Concentration (SIC) v2.0 ECV Dataset Release

The Sea Ice CCI team is pleased to announce the release of a full reprocessing of the Sea Ice Concentration (SIC) v2.0 ECV. The release provides Climate Data Record (CDR) of SIC over the polar regions, derived from medium resolution passive microwave satellite data of AMSR-E (2002-2011) and AMSR2 (2012-2015). Two different CDRs are made available from the CCI Data Portal. The two CDRs use different imaging channels and therefore they have different characteristics and accuracies.
