Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer aboard EOS (AMSR-E) data have been used to produce a finer resolved sea-ice concentration data set gridded onto a polar-stereographic grid true at 70 degrees with 6.25 km grid resolution. The sea-ice concentration data available here have been computed by applying the ARTIST Sea Ice (ASI) algorithm to brightness temperatures measured with the 89 GHz AMSR-E channels. These channels have a considereably finer spatial resolution than the commonly used lower frequency channels.
The ASI algorithm is described in Kaleschke et al. (2001) and Spreen et al. (2008).
So far there are no estimates of the uncertainties included in the data product.
