  • Significant wave height
  • Sea (height, direction and period)
  • Swell (height, direction and period)
  • Surface ocean currents (direction and speed)

WENDIS Weather Ice

The WENDIS Weather package contains: WENDIS ICE, which provides all details of sea ice limits in both the northern and southern hemispheres. It also provides information about the icebergs near Newfoundland. All daily reports on icebergs near Newfoundland are supported by and delivered from the Canadian Ice Service by Vento Maritime.

Furthermore, the southern and northern limits of sea ice are updated daily, based on recent satellite images from the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites, EUMETSAT. These data are for guidance purposes and are not recommended as a stand-alone product in connection with ice passages. It is therefore recommended to request Vento Maritime for ice guidance and Strategic Weather Routing.

WENDIS Weather Tropical Cyclones

Together with Vento Maritime, the National Hurricane Center and the Joint Typhoon Warning Center, we deliver very detailed information about tropical storms around the world. Tropical developments are some of the most difficult weather systems, when it comes to forecasting. However, NCEP, the Joint Typhoon Warning Center and the National Hurricane Center are in the lead, when it comes to predicting these weather systems. Again, due to the uncertainties related to tropical lows, requests to Vento Maritime for Strategic Weather Routing are recommended, when passing through high-risk areas.
