1) Essential Climate Variable (ECV) as defined by GCOS

2) The sea ice products are based upon the OSI SAF

3) Time span vil depend on availability of maps and mapping dates will also vary for each region.

4) Frequency will be dependent on the available imagery for each glacier. Only for selected glaciers and in recent years are series of annual photos available. It will also be dependent on copyrights.
