Ice charts

The Ice Service at DMI produces ice charts covering Greenland Waters primarily for the purpose of supporting navigation around Greenland.

The Ice Service produces overview charts twice a week (Mondays and Thursdays) as well as more detailed regional ice charts: Charts for the Cape Farewell region (between 59°N and 62°N) are recorded several times a week all year round while charts with varying coverage of the west and the north coast are produced according to season and navigation.

International standard ice chart codes by the World Meteorological Organisation are used in all ice charts.
