General description

 

4

What data/products do you currently use ?

SAR imagery (ships and icebergs) with NOFO daily

Metocean data for the drift model.

5

When do you use this kind of dataset?

Contingency plans, iceberg & sea-ice detection

These products are usefull to monitor the drift of an iceberg next to a platform and to monitor ships around the platform.

6

What are your actual limitations and do you have a work around? 

Ocean models:

  • there’s a need to improve the quality and the reliability of these models to meet with O&G needs. Reliability indicators are needed.
  • Enhancing hindcats quality at fix point

7

Needs and expectations on EO data

SAR:

  • Synoptic (every 6 hours) observations
  • Multi-band observations
  • Better coverage at low latitude

Update frequency

Synoptic for marine weather and icebergs, daily for sea ice

15

Spatial resolution

SAR: 30 m is OK, finer resolution for small iceberg, growlers detection is obtained by vessel borne radars.
