The SALIENSEAS project, part of the ERA4CS programme, is co-funded by the Innovation Found Denmark and by the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme of the European Union (Grant 690462).
This atlas shows the seasonal distribution of the icebergs - observed from space - in the waters around Greenland; it is a service developed- and provided by the SALIENSEAS project. The atlas consists of a series of maps that displays iceberg statistics for each of the 52 weeks of the year. Note that the maps show statistics on icebergs detected in open-water only. This is due to the presence of rugged structures in the sea ice (such as ridges and rubble fields), that make iceberg-detection in sea-ice infested areas uncertain.
