To create the best possible overview of and publish accurate information on the current ice conditions, Admiral Danish Fleet is in contact with ice observers across the country.
A large numbers of observers, ferries, ports and naval units, reports daily to Admiral Danish Fleet on ice conditions. Up to 240 daily reports from different areas compile a good picture of ice conditions in Denmark
The ice reports are submitted to Admiral Danish Fleet in a four digit code, called the Baltic Code. This reporting format is common to the countries around the Baltic Sea.
Ice observations are collected in an overview of ice and navigational conditions in the Danish waters. The overview is published in clear text, and also contains the situation in the Baltic Code. On the Danish part of the Admiral Danish Fleet web-page you will find a graphical overview.
List of ice and navigational conditions are daily exchanged with other countries around the Baltic Sea.
During periods where the ice causes problems for shipping in Danish waters, Lyngby Radio and Danish Radio transmit Ice Reports.
It is also possible to obtain information on ice conditions in Danish waters by calling the Danish Ice Service FAX ON DEMAND, on phone number +45 89 43 32 44, and you can find the current view on this website.
