At present, the polar regions belong to the regions of which the least information is available about the current and predicted states of surface and atmosphere. IOMASA contributes to the activity of extending the European capacity in Earth observation technology within ice monitoring and meteorology by promoting, in general, the utilisation of EO data. There is a need to improve our knowledge and monitoring and forecasting capabilities for Arctic regions - The IOMASA project aims to contribute to this by developing new validated earth observation products, and to transform them into higher-order products by integrating them with other data sources to demonstrate the feasibility of a near real time forecasting and monitoring system for the Arctic weather and sea ice.
