Work package/Task: 

WP6 - Demonstration


Thormøhlensgate 47 5006 Bergen

The training workshop on wave and ice forecasting will take place on 28th - 29th September 2016, at NERSC.

The workshop is free and open to current and future users of operational sea ice and wave forecasts with a particular interest in navigation close to the ice edge or into the Marginal Ice Zone.

The training course aims at teaching
- the methods of operational oceanography in the Arctic
- notions of numerical modelling of ocean waves and sea ice,
- notions of remote sensing
- how to use them in the onboard and onshore e-navigation softwares from NAVTOR AS.

The SWARP sea ice and wave services are contributing to the Copernicus Marine Services and the IOWAGA wave services respectively.
