Sea ice concentration

  • Sea Ice Concentration
  • The ratio of the area of the water surface covered by ice as a fraction of the whole area. Sea ice concentration has been monitored by polar orbiting satellites at all wavelengths.
Abstract from DBPedia
    Sea ice concentration is a useful variable for climatescientists and nautical navigators. It is defined as the area ofsea ice relative to the total at a given point in the ocean.This article will deal primarily with its determination from remote sensing measurements.
