1 SWARP: Ships and Waves Reaching Polar regions Laurent Bertino, Timothy Williams Nansen Environment and Remote Sensing Center, Bergen, Norway Contract number

2 Objectives Aim: Filling the gaps existing in the GMES services with respect to waves in sea ice 1) extending the validity of wave and sea ice forecasting systems in the marginal ice zone, 2) developing remote sensing methods for routine monitoring of combined risks of waves and ice As of today, there is no forecasting service in GMES that is valid for the gray zone where waves-in-ice processes dominate.

3 SWARP Partnership

4 Work Packages NERSC IFREMER NERC ODL NAVTOR

5 Fram Strait 3.5 km resolution (410 × 320) Barents and Kara Sea 5.0 km resolution (510 × 450) TOPAZ - North Atlantic and Arctic Oceans 11 – 16 km resolution (800 × 880) 28 hybrid vertical levels TOPAZ is the official European system for monitoring and forecasting the Arctic. It is exploited operationally at met.no

6 Model setup Topaz4 NA & AO Nesting: Ocean and Ice myocean.met.no Boundary Conditions Atmosphere (ECMWFR) Rivers (ERAI + TRIP05) Tides (FES2004) Ocean and Sea Ice Model (EVP + MIZ) 2-3 days Sea Ice Forecast (3 days EVP+MIZ web) (2 days WIM wave data) Validation OceanDataLab, NIERSC, Ifremer, NERSC WIM module (Waves-in-Ice) WW3 Ifremer.fr NestingForcingForecast ModelsValidation

7 Project schedule at a glance Mo 1-12: Developments – Models – Remote sensing methods Mo 13-24: Validation – Integration in NAVTOR’s NavPlanner Mo 25-36: Demonstration to users – Mo 30: Service launch – Mo 36: Final project meeting

8 Dissemination plan (WP7) Web sites Data service – – Short movie – Interviews this week – Animations – Scenes from (previous) research cruises

9 Practical information Soon: a SWARP website with internal area – Sharing presentations – Events, news … A SWARP logo (suggestions?) How to acknowledge the project – EU FP7 logo on the first slide of your presentations – Grant number acknowledged in publication Consortium agreement: status – Inputs from NERC, UO, NIERSC, ODL, NERSC – Waiting for IFREMER, ISMER, NAVTOR – Issues about the text? (IPR, …)

10 Finances SWARP has 3 reporting periods – End of January 2015, 2016 and 2017 – Use of EU online reporting tools (Emdesk, Force)
