ARCTICE

Ice Conditions Index for the Arctic


ARCTICE Icon

Project Overview

ADAC researchers are developing an ice condition index for the Arctic USCG operators and mariners. The Arctic Ice Condition Index (ARCTICE) will be a high-resolution guidance and decision support tool for Arctic-bound ships that will provide ice forecasts using localized aggregate environmental conditions as input for an algorithm. This tool will aid in safe ship travel through specific areas.
