Partners

The SPICES project team comprises 14 organisations that are European leaders and among the world leaders in the field of satellite remote sensing as applied to Polar sea ice monitoring and forecasting. The SPICES team comprises nearly all members of the ESA SICCI activity which is producing time series of sea ice concentration and thickness from the EO data for climate change monitoring and modelling. Some partners are part of the EUMETSAT OSI SAF and EC Copernicus CMEMS activities producing sea ice information (from the EO data and models) for marine activities and operational oceanagraphy. In the field satellite sea ice remote sensing the SPICES partners some partners are experienced in utilization of scatterometer and microwave radiometer data (e.g., DMI, IFREMER, MET.NO, UB, UHAM, ITU), in SAR usage (DTU, FMI, CNR, NERSC, UNIVPM), and some in using radar altimeter (RA) data (AWI, DMI, FMI, NERSC). This brings together a wide experience, the best in the Europe, in sea ice remote sensing.

Three partners, DMI, FMI, and MET.NO, have national Ice Services which provide operational sea ice services for a wide range of end-users. Through contacts and operational procedures of the Ice Services dissemination of the SPICES's sea ice products can be easily and smoothly performed.

AWI and UNIVPM are experts in sea ice physics and very experienced in collecting and processing airborne, upper looking sonar, and in-situ sea ice data. UNIVPM has an outstanding expertise in theoretical background as well as observational capabilities to examine sea ice thickness distribution. AWI owns experience in CryoSat-2 data processing and ice thickness calculations from RA data.

Five partners, ECMWF, DMI, FMI, MET.NO and MPI, are world leaders in sea ice modelling, their cumulative expertise include theoretical sea ice physics, development of new sea ice models and production of sea ice forecast from synoptic to climate scales.

The university partners (DTU, ITU, UNIVPM, UB, UH) allows transition of the new knowledge gained in the SPICES project to new generation of European scientists.
