BackForward Variable: Sea-ice type

Full name Sea-ice type
Definition Variable convolving several factors (age, roughness, density, etc.) - Accuracy expressed as number of classes. Actually [ classes^-1 ] is used, so that smaller figure corresponds to better performance, as usual.
Measuring Units Classes Uncertainty Units Classes -1
Horizontal Res Units km Vertical Res Units
Stability Units Classes -1 (Stability /decade)


Comment: Includes classes such as: new ice, multi-year ice, flat/rough, etc.
