  1. The North American Ice ServiceUpdate Michael Manore, CIS CDR Paul Stewart, NIC

  2. Objectives • Combine strengths of each centre • Offer an integrated ice information service for North America • highest possible quality and consistency • single point-of-access to users • Optimize resources of both countries, reduce duplication • data access, production processes, system development, training, science, etc. • Built around a common “public” suite of products • each centre still able to service their special clients independently (e.g. U.S. Navy, Canadian Coast Guard)

  3. Vision for 2010-2015 • Common access to all data • Fully-integrated production processes • Full daily suite of ice productsover North American waters • Common branding of NAISproducts • Migration: • from pre-formatted chart products to spatial databases of past, present and future states of ice • Customer interactive “mapping on demand”

  4. FRAMEWORK ANDGOVERNANCE • Annex to MOU between NOAA/NESDIS and MSC “Cooperation in EnvironmentalData Acquisition and Utilization” • Governance through Joint Ice WG • Co-Chairs • Technical Committees • Operations • Information Technology • Science NAIS AGREEMENT SIGNED MONTREAL, 27 JUNE, 2003

  5. PROGRESS TO DATE Great Lake Harmonization • Joint 30-day forecast and Outlook • Common Climatology • Coding and chart standardization • Personnel cross-training FECN11 CWIS 031800 THIRTY DAY FORECAST FOR THE GREAT LAKES FOR MARCH ISSUED JOINTLY BY THE CANADIAN ICE SERVICE OF ENVIRONMENT CANADA AND THE U.S. NATIONAL ICE CENTER OF THE UNITED STATES ON 03 MARCH 2004. Lake Superior Above to much above normal temperatures prevailed over the entire area during the last half of February. Ice extent and concentrations were less than normal over the entire lake. Forecast ice conditions from March 3rd to March 15th. Temperatures will be slightly above to above normal during the first half of March. Eastern Chart by NIC Western Chart by CIS

  6. NEXT STEPS • NAIS identity • Operations • Arctic 2004 • Seasonal Outlook • Joint production of Charts • data supply arrangementsfor Envisat, RADARSAT-2 • IT • data and meta-data standards • web presence • IMS web server • Science • confirm common science plan • long-term emphasis on modeling and DA NIC 1 of 7 Arctic charts CIS 1 of 3 regional Arctic charts
