Description Usage Format References Examples

Description

The object emFeb2012 is an array of the ensemble mean of the predicted sea ice concentration from the CM2.5 Forecast-oriented Low-Ocean Resolution (FLOR) model produced by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration<e2><80><99>s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (Vecchi et al. 2014; Msadek et al. 2014). The data have been converted to the Polar stereographic grid. Weights for converting to a polar stereograhic grid were obtained from the spherical coordinate remapping and interpolation package (SCRIP) (Jones 1997).
