Norwegian Meteorological Institute met.no Contents of presentation The ICEMON Consortium Objectives and Scope of ICEMON Services and Users Open Service Partnership
Norwegian Meteorological Institute met.no SAR ice monitoring for climate research, environmental management, resource exploitation and marine operation safety in polar regions Helge Tangen (met.no), Project Manager ICEMON partners: NERSC, met.no, C-W, FIMR, VTT, FMA, SMHI, AWI, Vexcel UK, UCL/CPOM, KSPT, KSAT, NPI, DNV, IFREMER, CIS
Norwegian Meteorological Institute met.no Consortium Operational Service providers: Norwegian Meteorological Institute (met.no) Kongsberg Satellite Systems (KSAT) Finnish Institute of Marine Research (FIMR) IFREMER Swedish Met. and Hydrological Institute - Marine Forecasting Centre Canadian Ice Service (CIS) System Developers: Technical Research Centre of Finland (VTT) Kongsberg Spacetec (KSPT) Vexcel UK (Vexcel) Research partners: Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) University College London, Centre for Polar Observation and Modelling (UCL) Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Centre (NERSC) Core User Group: Finnish Maritime Administration (FMA) Swedish Met. and Hydrological Institute-- Rossby Centre (RC) Det Norske Veritas (DNV) Norwegian Polar Institute (NPI) Cost Benefit Analysis ControlWare Expert Consultants: Northern Sea Route Administration (NSRA) Murmansk Shipping Company (MSC)

Norwegian Meteorological Institute met.no Objectives and Scope of the ICEMON Service Short-term Scope (1-2 years) –Demonstrate SAR ice monitoring in key areas of Arctic Ocean ++, delivering high resolution products (<1 km) –Significant improvement of quality –Scatterometer products : ice drift on large scale –NRT products for operational users –Offline info for climate monitoring (+ for design criteria for maritime structures)
Norwegian Meteorological Institute met.no ICEMON Service Coverage
Norwegian Meteorological Institute met.no Objectives and Scope of the ICEMON Service (contd.) Intermediate Scope (3-5 years) –Sea ice products integrated with met. and oceanogr. products (monitoring, hindcast and forecast) –Expanded to include ice thickness from CryoSat –Products used in modelling and data assimilation for improved forecasting services Concept can only be implemented as joint effort between key institutions and in synergy with projects in operational oceanography.
Norwegian Meteorological Institute met.no Objectives and Scope of the ICEMON Service (contd.) Long-term Scope (10 years) –Objective of ICEMON to deliver operational monitoring and forecasting services of met-ice-ocean conditions at HL. –Integrated service network implemented –Several providers supply different products for different regions as part of a Global Service System.
Norwegian Meteorological Institute met.no Input Data and Services from several providers Output to the User segment information input interface information output interface Database system Common processing system Ice Service 2 Ice Service 1 Ice Service 3 Ice Service 4 ICEMON Service system
Norwegian Meteorological Institute met.no Service network characteristics ICEMON will build a European monitoring and forecasting capacity by integration of existing operational services with new service providers –Access to several services in one system -transparent for users –User-driven services and products –Multiple options for entries (e.g. ENVISAT & Radarsat) –Coverage of entire Arctic + European ice covered seas –Close cooperation with Canada, USA and Russia; and with other GMES services for optimal outputs
Norwegian Meteorological Institute met.no User segments Ice navigation and sea transport Design of ships and offshore construction Port and maritime authorities Environmental monitoring Weather and ice services Climate monitoring and control
Norwegian Meteorological Institute met.no What are we trying to do? Why do users need our services? –Ice + atmospheric-ocean parameters important for Navigation / offshore operations / exploitation Climate and environment monitoring How will they benefit from them? –Better understanding of key climate processes at HL –Better prevention and control of marine pollution management + conservation of Arctic ecosystems and environment –Safer sea transportation + offshore operations in Polar regions –Improved design criteria for vessels + marine constructions in Polar regions
Norwegian Meteorological Institute met.no Open Service Partnership ICEMON service concept envisaged to be open met-ice-ocean service system where: –Several providers can deliver products –Users can obtain wide range of products via single entry access point under agreed conditions –Services are both chargeable and free-of-charge –All service providers conform to agreed basic functions and formats for metadata etc. –Client software independent of service providers –User requirements decide how integration of sercice elements should be done: USER DRIVEN
