Abstract:

The principal aim of this publication is to provide operators and researchers with historical weekly hemispheric analyses of sea ice conditions derived principally from satellite imagery supplemented by conventional observations. The charts constructed by Navy ice analysts under operational time constraints from satellite imagery and conventional data. Reanalysis with late data was not normally attempted rather the current analysis was prepared incorporating this to the extent possible. The analysis was compared with available climatology in an attempt to eliminate gross errors.
