SNAP Historical Sea Ice Atlas

The Historical Sea Ice Atlas was a joint project funded by the Alaska Ocean Observing System (AOOS), the Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP), and the Scenarios Network for Alaska and Arctic Planning (SNAP). It aggregates a wide variety of sea ice observations and measurements, from whaling ship logbooks from 1850 to near real-time passive microwave satellite data in the present, to generate a sea ice time series over 150 years long for the seas surrounding the state of Alaska, USA. This resource can be used to explore the trends in sea ice extent and concentration at multiple scales through time.
