sea_ice_binary_mask

under discussion
Created: Feb. 8, 2021
Proposer: Emily Schlie, Eric Engle, and the CAMPS team
Proposed Date: 2020-12-22
Change Date: Feb. 8, 2021, 3:22 p.m.
Term: surface_ice_binary_mask
Unit: 1
Unit ref: UUUU
AMIP:
GRIB:
X"_binary_mask" has 1 where condition X is met, 0 elsewhere. The value is 1 where the ice cover area fraction is greater than a threshold, and 0 elsewhere. The threshold must be specified by associating a coordinate variable or scalar coordinate variable with the data variable and giving the coordinate variable a standard name of surface_ice_area_fraction. The values of the coordinate variable are the threshold values for the corresponding subarrays of the data variable.
