Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI)

Monitoring and forecasting products from DMI are presented at ocean.dmi.dk/arctic/index.uk.php.

The Danish Meteorological Institute DMI is responsible for serving the meteorological needs of society within the kingdom of Denmark (Denmark, the Faroes and Greenland) including territorial waters and airspace. This entails monitoring weather, climate and environmental conditions in the atmosphere, on land and at sea.

DMI’s  Centre for Ocean and Ice provides information about the state of the sea at present, and for the near future. The heart of the centre’s activities are surge warnings, ice charting, waves, ocean currents, satellite surveillance, ocean climate and marine data. The areas of coverage are the North Sea, the Baltic, Greenland, and Faroese waters. The North Atlantic and other selected areas are also covered.

DMI participates in a number of international activities related to Arctic ROOS such as ESA’s PolarView (www.polarview.org), the Ocean and Sea Ice Satellite Application Facility of EUMETSAT (OSISAF) (saf.met.no), and the DAMOCLES (Developing Arctic Modeling and Observing Capabilities for Long-term Environmental Studies) integrated project funded by the European Commission (www.damocles-eu.org/).
