Global Ice Center

The Weathernews Global Ice Center (GIC) has team of specialists monitoring and forecasting global ice conditions around the world, starting with the Arctic. Using analysis of global satellite images and our own sea-ice prediction model, the I-SEE Engine, the GIC monitors the state of sea ice in the North Pole where sea ice is receding seasonally with the effects of global climate changes. Besides providing the necessary information for supporting safe voyages of vessels transiting the Northern Sea Route (NSR) that ships are starting to sail, the GIC also monitors and predicts sea ice in upper latitudes like the Baltic, Okhost and Bohais Seas; and Saint Lawrence Bay.
