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 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.
The Polar Expert Group of the European Commission has published the 3rd of it's "User Requirements for a Copernicus Polar Observing System" reports. This report, subtitled "Phase 3 Report - Towards Operational Products and Services", incorporates recommendations from the KEPLER project led by MET.
