#' Polygon of all regions
#'
#' All regions except the non-regional ocean converted into a single \code{SpatialPolygons}
#' object. Regions are modified from the region masks provided by the National Snow and Ice Data
#' Center (NSIDC)

#' Polygon of the non-regional ocean
#'
#' The non-regional ocean converted into a single \code{SpatialPolygons}
#' object. Thee boundaries of the non-regional ocean were defined by modifying the region masks provided
#' by the National Snow and Ice Data  Center (NSIDC).

#' Polygon of land
#'
#' Land mask as a single \code{SpatialPolygons} object. The land mask was obtained from the
#' CM2.5 Forecast-oriented Low-Ocean Resolution (FLOR) model
#' produced by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics
#' Laboratory converted to a Polar Stereographic grid.  (Vecchi et al. 2014; Msadek et al. 2014).
#'  Weights for converting to a polar stereograhic grid were obtained from the spherical
#'  coordinate remapping and interpolation package (SCRIP) (Jones 1997).
