Damocles, take 2

Remember the Damocles Arctic sea ice project I blogged last week? The page associated with the Google Earth network link (KMZ) is now looking a whole lot more informative — explaining precisely what all the data types portrayed are.

While you’re playing with the network link, be sure to turn on the AMSR-E total ice concentration layer for a very colorful and informative take on the effect of the Gulf Stream on the sea ice. All this is of course screaming out for time lapse motion. (Thanks to Pierre-Philippe Mathieu at ESA for the original heads up. Is ESA’s EOMD planning anything with Google Earth, BTW? Can’t let NASA have all the fun:-)
