emFeb2012: Ensemble mean sea ice concentration for February 2012...

Description Usage Format References Examples


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’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).
