In this part of meereisportal.de, you can view maps of the sea-ice concentration in the Arctic and Antarctic and select the timeframe you’re most interested in. You can also download the graphics you’ve selected and, with proper citation, use them elsewhere. All graphics are based on quality-controlled data.
Using the selection menu, you can filter the archived maps, dating back to 2002, according to your individual needs. The navigation allows you to choose between daily maps and monthly-mean maps. The sea-ice data provided – the latest currently available – is constantly updated and expanded. Any changes or updates will be accompanied by notifications.
