MASIE, as I understand it, is a product aimed at providing digital data of the SeaIce extent as determined for use in Maritime Sector. This means that actual definition of what constitutes Sea Ice is different from that which is used in Arctic Research (afaik). For example the edge of the extent is an area that has enough Ice present that may pose a risk to people working at sea. The MASIE GIS layers do not contain any Sea Ice density data. Therefore when I use them I combined them with RTOFS Sea Ice model data to get and idea of what is going on. In short, MASIE should not be used to look at trends in Sea Ice as it is derived from data used for Sea/Arctic Safety purposes.
