MWR Sea Ice Concentration
Masuelli, S. and Salgado, H. (17-Nov-15)

The prototype L2 algorithm for MWR Sea Ice Concentration was first developed in 2010, with the first version being released in 2012 and a second version released in 2014. The first version experienced artifacts due to the Smear Effect, and resulted in the overestimate over the open sea. The second version included a correction for the Smear Effect, better land mask, an atmospheric filter, and was calibrated using six months of data.
