Fish and sea ice
« on: July 10, 2017, 01:47:52 PM »
I am interested in relating contemporary food-web characteristics in Atlantic waters of the Arctic (Barents, Greenland Seas) to sea-ice extent. My food-web data would be derived from biological materials sampled from across the fishable waters. Is there a database/model that would allow me to relate any sampled site to sea-ice characteristics (e.g. thickness, duration of cover) at various intervals over the last ~5 years? If so, how would I access these data?

You can get databases for sea ice extent, with daily values and gridded resolution, from NSIDC, JAXA  and Uni Hamburg. You can get daily gridded thickness data (average and distribution within a grid cell) from PIOMAS/Polar Science Center. I can't give you the exact download links or how to get the exact files you need, but if you can't manage there are some serious experts around here that can help.
I also suggest to browse the developers corner for some relevant threads.
