Sea ice vectors ncdf

We met last summer in Sète to discuss the possibility of moving "penguin" particles with sea ice vector data.  We've identified two different data sets to compare movements and I'm hoping to begin testing out using them in Ichthyop.  The first data set I have comes in the form of a 25km daily vectors stored in yearly ndcf files.  I tried to load the 2017 data set using the Mercator2D template but am not quite sure how to fill in the variables.  The 2017 NCDF and a metadata query of the ncdf file is attached.  At this point I don't think my config file would help because I'm not even sure how to properly fill in the variables.  Can you provide some guidance to help me get started?
