Quantitative parameters of riding are included to ice information delivered by ice services and used on board ships. Ridge parameter resolving forecast models and SAR classification algorithms are developed and parameters are included to ice charts. Ground truth experiments are conducted. Methods to assist route selection in ice are developed, based on physical modelling of ship ice resistance and simulation of ship progress. These are implemented to a terminal applied to present ice charts and SAR images on board. The work is validated by routine ship operations. The end result is a system of ice information presentation, delivery and application, structured to facilitate the continuing assimilation of results.
