ICEMAR project - a GMES Pilot Sea Ice Service for Maritime Operations


ICEMAR will establish a pilot service delivering sea ice information products directly to ships navigating near or in ice-infested waters in the European Arctic and Baltic Sea.


ICEMAR will provide access to a wide range of sea ice information products. Initially these will be provided by the European Ice Service and other project partners. In the future it is intended to integrate products from a wider group of partners.A number of example products are:

  • DMI East & West Greenland ice charts
  • Met.no regional and Svalbard ice charts
  • Satellite synthetic aperture radar images
  • Kongsberg Satellite Services AS (KSAT), Norway
  • British Antarctic Survey (BAS), UK
  • Bundesamt für Seeschifffahrt und Hydrographie (BSH), Germany
  • Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI), Denmark
  • Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI), Finland
  • Astrium GeoInformation Services, Germany
  • Kalmar Maritime Academy (KMA), Sweden
  • Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Centre (NERSC), Norway
  • Norwegian Meteorological Institute (Met.No), Norway
  • Swedish Meteorological and hydrological Institute (SMHI), Swede
  • VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland (VTT), Finland
