    Icepac interface (Opens in a new Window)

    Icepac project aims to develop a probability model of the space-time variability of sea ice at the local scale based. The descriptive and statistical tools available under IcePAC provide users with information on ice conditions and allow them to better understand the temporal and spatial evolution of sea ice. This information can help users to protect against risks to ships and maritime infrastructure.
