The workshop is free and open to current and future users of operational sea ice and wave forecast services 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 (numerical modelling, remote sensing) and how those can enter 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 services respectively.
