These products are provided by The Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI) under Polar View project supported by ESA. BIM pages are showing only ice drift and ice concentration over +6, +12, +24 and +45h time steps. Please check forecasts in 3h time steps and over 6 parameters in polarview.fimr.fi.
Ice Forecasts are published daily around 7:00 UTC. The forecasts cover the area of the northern Baltic Sea with spatial resolution of one nautical mile, and range over two days in three-hour steps. For the 54th forecast the model is forced with atmospheric model data from HIRLAM. Ice parameters are based on products made from satellite data. The quality of the forecasts will be evaluated during the project perioid, and improvements will be made in the meantime.
