NetCDF files are named as:
Daily mean SMOS sea ice thickness is given in NetCDF v3 format. Global attributes are given in Table 2. The variables are given as grid arrays as listed in Table 3.

This dataset contains Level-3 daily sea ice thickness products from satellite observations in the northern hemisphere. Northern hemisphere sea ice thickness coverage is limited to the winter month between October and April. 100% sea ice coverage is assumed, which leads to underestimation of sea ice thickness.
