Model Monthly Net Freezing Rate [Steele, M.]

Summary

This dataset contains computed monthly net freezing rate (nfr) over the entire Arctic Ocean, Barents Sea, and Greenland-Iceland-Norwegian Seas for the years 1997 and 1998. The data have been generated using a numerical sea ice - ocean model described by Zhang et. al.1998. Forcing was provided by the National Centers for Environmental Prediction/National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCEP/NCAR) reanalysis. Net freezing rate is defined as the net growth minus melt over all ice thickness categories, where positive values represent net growth. The data are provided as unformatted binary files and are arranged on a cartesian (x,y) grid based on a polar stereographic projection.
