NSIDC request for new science keyword

by windnage » Tue Feb 14, 2023 6:14 pm America/New_York

Hello,
NSIDC DAAC would like to request 2 new science keywords to support new sea ice products.

EARTH SCIENCE > CRYOSPHERE > SEA ICE > SEA ICE DYNAMICS
EARTH SCIENCE > OCEANS > SEA ICE > SEA ICE DYNAMICS
Short name: Sea Ice Dynamics
Long name: Sea Ice Dynamics

EARTH SCIENCE > CRYOSPHERE > SEA ICE > SEA ICE MASS BALANCE
EARTH SCIENCE > OCEANS > SEA ICE > SEA ICE MASS BALANCE
Short name: Sea Ice Mass Balance
Long name: Sea Ice Mass Balance

Here is the definition of these two terms:
Sea ice dynamics: the drift of sea ice forced by the winds and ocean currents
Seas ice mass balance: the net balance between the sea ice mass gained by freezing and the loss of mass by melting that is a function of its extent and thickness, which combine to give its volume.

Thank you
Ann

Hi Scott,
Wanted to check in on the progress of this. I don't have permission to access the jira link you posted; so if there are updates there, I can't see them.
Thanks,
Ann
