IceTrafPrep: A feasibility study of a Trafficability Ice Chart Service

Research output: Book/ReportReport

Abstract

Information about the dynamically changing ice cover and its effects on ship traffic is an important topic for transport logistics in wintertime. The shipping and logistics operators need this information for planning purposes. Presently the ice charts, compiled by the Ice Services, even though updated once a day based on satellite images, only gives a rough overview of the ice situation with little information about how the ice situation affects the ship speed and thus the transit times of the ships. The objective of this pre-study is to estimate the feasibility of a new information product/service that would show the ice conditions in a simplified way on the routes used by ships as perceived by the ships themselves. If successful, this would improve the real-time estimation of travel times in ice thus serving the needs for improved logistics planning involving ship transports in ice covered waters.
