Canada – USA Freezing Spray – Ice Survey

posted in: Science-Research | 0

Freezing spray is an important safety issue in coastal Canadian and United States waters. In an effort to improve freezing spray forecasts, NOAA and Environment Canada are teaming up to evaluate each country’s freezing spray forecast models and tools.

Analysis of freezing spray cases, forecaster feedback, and ship observations will allow Environment Canada and NOAA scientists and forecasters to better predict dangerous freezing spray conditions to protect life and property at sea.

Mariners are encouraged to report icing conditions to NOAA and Environment Canada

Please include the following observations:

Date & Time
