The Arctic Sea Ice Information Center will disseminate mid-term and short-term sea ice forecasts and short-term wave predictions for the Arctic Ocean, on the basis of the experience through the mid-term Arctic sea ice forecasts that were conducted in the past.
The center will also integrate the advanced researches on oil spill hazard maps in ice-infested waters and ship navigation simulation, and will provide them to the stakeholders, responding to the feedbacks.
The sea ice forecast and its basic research were started in GRENE, continued to ArCS Project, and has been conducted in ArCS II Project since 2020.
