Customized ice services from DMI

April 5th, 2016

The Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) can provide customized ice services to AECO members (for specific areas), seven days a week throughout the season. DMI has access to satellite radar data for all Greenland waters and the northwest Atlantic Ocean as input to the development of customized ice services. In addition, DMI in the future wants to plan their basic ice services even more around AECO operators’ needs by providing better services in the areas with most traffic. AECO has plans to share the collective sailing plans in order for the institute to do this more effectively. DMI has provided AECO operators the contact information of the person in charge of the ice services, which members can use to ask for their specific needs throughout the season. Please contact AECO’s secretariat for more information and/or read more about DMI here.
