Automated Downstream Sea Ice Products for Greenland Waters

Project Details


Develop an automatic sea ice product service for Greenland waters which can meet the increased demands for sea ice information coming from the growing group of users operating in Greenland waters. In between the span from traditional manually produced Ice Charts and daily downstream sea ice products in coarse resolution, there is a lack of high resolution products delivered in near-real time. ASIP will meet this demand, taking advantage of the vast amount of new data from the Copernicus Sentinel satellites and by using a new and innovative data fusion approach and state-of-the-art mathematical data processing methods: Utilizing data from satellite sensors with different capabilities, will allow for ice products that are independent of daylight, weather and season and result in a significant increase in product temporal frequency and geographical coverage compared to existing sea ice products.
