Additional Greenland Routine Ice Products and Services

Our focus and setup for the Greenland Waters north of 62°N is based on various satellites, including Sentinel 1A and Radarsat-2 available via our participation in international programmes:

  • Our Ice Operations Office based at the DMI Head Quarters in Copenhagen, manned within regular office hours produces every Monday and Thursday a Greenland Ice Analyses capsulating all relevant satellite data as input to a more general ice analysis for all Greenland Waters (not intended for navigation). This Greenland Analysis is also used for input to our numerical models.
  • Infrequent regional ice analyses focused seasonal shipping, based on selected Radarsat-2, Sentinel 1A and Terra/Aqua Modis is produced by the Ice Operations Office, on weekdays.
