This data set includes the numerical data accompanying the publication "Simulating linear kinematic features in viscous-plastic sea ice models on quadrilateral and triangular grids with different variable staggering". In addition to the raw data, the Python script is also deposited, which can be used to detect the Linear Kinematic Features, an essential parameter for comparing the different methods. The folder names correspond to the different models that have been compared in the paper. The folder "analysis" contains the Python-Script for LKF detection.
