Sea ice maps from the Norwegian Meteorological Institute

Ice-maps are produced five days a week by The Norwegian Meteorological Institute, met.no, and published between 2 and 3 pm. The maps are based on satellite images.

Various ice maps can be viewed on their web.

The ice-map which best shows seas around Iceland is also available on our web. While viewing, it is advisable to refresh the web-site to make sure that the latest map appears.

The ice chart colour code standard is available (WMO 2004 JCOMM, pdf 1.1 Mb).
