Small update to the OSI SAF Sea Ice Edge product

A small change is being done to the OSI SAF Sea Ice Edge product (OSI-402-c), as it is necessary to change the auxiliary data used in the dynamical calculation of the algorithm coefficients. This change has shown to have a small positive impact on the sea ice edge product quality, as shown in the attached figure. There is no impact on the product format or product distribution. The sea ice edge product is also used in the sea ice type (OSI-403-c) and low resolution sea ice drift (OSI-405-c) products, and hence these products are also indirectly affected. 

The change will be effective with the product distributed on 24 September 2020 and onwards.
