    String summary 
"This dataset is a level 3, daily, 10km, polar stereographic mapped composite of sea ice concentration using data from the GCOM-1 satellite AMSR-2 microwave sensor. 
            These L3 composites are generated from level 2 data provided by NOAA OSPO; NOGAPS algorithm developed by NOAA STAR (Paul Chang, Lead). 
            NOAA CoastWatch obtains L2 from OSPO and generates a L3 daily merged (composite) and maps to polar stereographic projection for routine distribution. 
            The OSPO/STAR L2 product uses the GCOM-W1 AMSR-2 Algorithm Software Processor (GAASP) which takes the full orbital JAXA L1B data via NASA, applies brightness temperature bias corrections, assigns an RFI flag, performs internal reformatting, and then generates L2 products from the NOAA Operational GCOM-W1 AMSR-2 Products System Algorithm (NOGAPS).  
            Platform/Sensor Details: The second Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer 2 (AMSR-2) on JAXA's Global Climate Observation Mission - Water 1 (GCOM-W1). 
            Temporal coverage: Daily composites and 4-day rolling merge composites are produced daily with a latency of 12-24 hours. 
            The composites have a 10 km spatial resolution and are mapped to Polar Stereographic projections for North Pole. The AMSR-2 Microwave sensor is not impacted by clouds and serves as a full coverage dataset that supplements the NOAA VIIRS infra-red 750m data. 
            This L3 dataset is originally served on the STAR THREDDS server, PolarWatch connects to the dataset via the STAR ERDDAP server.

Using griddap to Request Data and Graphs from Gridded Datasets

griddap lets you request a data subset, graph, or map from a gridded dataset (for example, sea surface temperature data from a satellite), via a specially formed URL. griddap uses the OPeNDAP (external link) Data Access Protocol (DAP) (external link) and its projection constraints (external link).

The URL specifies what you want: the dataset, a description of the graph or the subset of the data, and the file type for the response.

griddap request URLs must be in the form
https://coastwatch.pfeg.noaa.gov/erddap/griddap/datasetID.fileType{?query}
For example,
https://coastwatch.pfeg.noaa.gov/erddap/griddap/jplMURSST41.htmlTable?analysed_sst[(2002-06-01T09:00:00Z)][(-89.99):1000:(89.99)][(-179.99):1000:(180.0)]
Thus, the query is often a data variable name (e.g., analysed_sst), followed by [(start):stride:(stop)] (or a shorter variation of that) for each of the variable's dimensions (for example, [time][latitude][longitude]).

For details, see the griddap Documentation.
