This web site contains global sea ice data including thickness, concentration, and growth and melt rate, etc. The data are from the Global Ice-Ocean Modeling and Assimilation System (GIOMAS) covering 1979-present. Creation of the global sea ice data set was originally supported by NASA (NNG04GB03G, PIs: Jinlun Zhang and Drew Rothrock) and the maintenance of the data set has been supported by NSF (ANT-0838769, PI: Jinlun Zhang).
Here are GIOMAS simulated sea ice thickness and satellite observed ice edge (red line) for the Arctic (left) and the Antarctic (right):
