Implications of global climate warming for Canadian east coast sea-ice and iceberg regimes over the next years: a summary of a report prepared by Arctic Sciences Limited / . Abstract. Iceberg models, as presently used in applications off the eastern coast of Canada, are described and summarized. These models can be divided into short, intermediate, and long-term categories, which are associated with: close-in ice management (within 30 km of drill sites); regional iceberg distribution forecasts, and; generalized 3 to 6 month advanced predictions of iceberg severity Cited by: (). Trends and Variability in Sea Ice and Icebergs off the Canadian East Coast. Atmosphere-Ocean: Vol. 53, Aquatic Climate Change Adaptation Services Program (ACCASP) / Programme des services d'adaptation aux changements climatiques en milieu aquatique (PSACCMA), pp. Cited by: 3. Years with high January sea ice coverage off the Labrador coast are correlated with high iceberg counts because sea ice helps to protect icebergs from grounding, melting, and wave deterioration.

FICN10 CWIS Iceberg bulletin for the East Coast waters issued by Environment Canada at p.m. EDT Saturday 23 May for today. The next scheduled bulletin will be issued at . This chapter provides an overview of environmental conditions that can be expected in areas of Canada where navigation in ice occurs. The chapter includes a summary of important meteorological and oceanographic features of the marine environment, a description of basic ice properties, a review of ice conditions that may be encountered in different regions of Canada and information on icebergs. This map combines the latest ice information available from Canadian Ice Service charts. This ice information is updated daily in areas of known marine activity. In remaining Canadian waters, ice information is updated weekly from the regional charts which are . the IIP and others with interests in East Coast navigation. The iceberg severity off Newfoundland is revisited in the light of several major efforts to document and reorganize East Coast iceberg data-taking and analyses as well as the availability of, roughly, 20 more years of higher quality sea ice and iceberg .

‘Iceberg Corridor’ sparks tourist boom on Canada’s east coast 04/08/ 04/08/ Oman Observer At dusk, tourists marvel at the sensational collapse of an iceberg at the end of its long journey from Greenland to Canada’s east coast, which now has a front row seat to the melting of the Arctic’s ice.   Just off the coast of Newfoundland float humongous slabs of bright, white ice -- almost close enough to touch.
