IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

NUMERICAL STUDY ON A SHORT-TERM SEA-ICE PREDICTION FOR THE NORTHERN SEA ROUTE AND NORTHWEST PASSAGE
Author : Jun Ono, Liyanarachchi Waruna Arampath De Silva, Hajime Yamaguchi
Recently, the Northern Sea Route (NSR) and Northwest Passage (NWP) have been opened to a greater extent due to sea-ice retreat in summer Arctic Ocean. This increases the possibility for the use of the NSR and NWP as a new Arctic sea route. Thus, a precise prediction system is vital for safe ship navigation in the NSR and NWP. To date, a lot of numerical studies have been carried out to forecast the overall Arctic Sea ice processes for the Climate change impacts on the cryosphere. With regards to the safe ship navigation, however, the accuracy and resolution in their model are still questionable. Our goal is to predict the ice edge up to 5 days ahead within an error of 10 km, using high-resolution (about 2.5 km) model. To date, an ice-ocean coupled model of the Arctic Ocean has been developed on the basis of the model. The
