SEDNA Codified Arctic Knowledge Base

This report sets out, in end-user terms, the key considerations for ensuring that Maritime Professionals can safely navigate and operate within Polar/Arctic/Ice affected regions. By providing a consolidation of findings, methods, best practices and guidelines from industry validated knowledge sources, the SEDNA programme and indeed end-users can access a bank of comprehensive knowledge in which the focus is specifically on completing Safe Arctic Navigation. This report addresses such engagement, by presenting a codified knowledge source, which outlines “real world” end-user considerations, which were developed through interactions with Ice Navigation experts, field trip observations, and continuous engagement with the relevant expertise within the SEDNA project.
