Sea ice in January 2009

In January sea ice was about 70-80 nm westnorthwest off Westfjords. The IMO paid close attention to the proceedings on satellite images and put information in that regard three times on the web. Easterly and northeasterly winds were dominant in the Greenland Strait. No dispatches were received from ships and the Coast Guard did not go on an exploration flight. By the end of the month sea ice maps from the Norwegian Met Office were made accessible on the IMO's web site (originally hafis/iskort-met_no). The maps are based on satellite information. They are made during the weekdays and are ready between 14 and 15.
