SALIENSEAS will hold a laboratory-style testing session with MET.no in collaboration with potential users of a new seasonal sea ice forecast product. The event will take place on January 28, 2020 at the University of Tromsø.
During this event, participants will engage with the new sea ice service within a computerized gaming experiment ICEWISE. The game allows players to test MET.no’s new forecast product while also helping researchers understand the dynamics of sea ice services as a decision support tool. The results from the game will be used to fine-tune the sea ice forecast product to better meet user specifications. The gaming experiment will be followed by a plenary discussion with MET.no researchers.
We invite experts, from the Arctic cruise tourism sector familiar with operational planning for activities around Svalbard and Greenland, to join us for this event. This short video introduces the game ICEWISE and provides a glimpse into the gaming portion of the event:
