This web portal gives access to the latest products and information about sea ice, snow and permafrost - the cryosphere - from the Norwegian Meteorological Institute.
We have an available 3-years position as researcher / scientific programmer!
Closing date October 15, 2021!
We are proud that our sea ice data were used in the 6th IPCC Assessment Report (AR6) that was released early this August!
We’re pleased to announce the availability of our visualisations from a number of short-range sea ice forecasts for the Greenland Sea and Fram Strait. These provide maps of estimated sea ice concentration, thickness, and drift at 24 forecast intervals, and animations for the whole forecast period, up to 6 days ahead. The new page also provides a comparison of the forecasts for predicted distance and direction of the sea ice edge from near Jan Mayen island.
Don’t miss the chance to hear our research scientists talk about the cryosphere this month.
