AbstractThe Program of Energy Research and Development (PERD) has been funding development of the Iceberg drift and deterioration model in two areas: Improved Iceberg forecasts and Improved bergy bit guidance. The focus of the Improved Iceberg forecasts project is to develop improved iceberg information for the marine community in general and more specifically to the energy production sector. This will be accomplished by developing an improved operational iceberg modelling system running at the CIS. The focus of the Improved bergy bit guidance project is to develop improved understanding of iceberg calving mechanisms and bergy bit drift and deterioration and develop a standalone model that end-users can use. The information will be presented to interested tanker captains during training sessions or through training focused reports. Canadian Ice Service (CIS) has contracted Canadian Hydraulics Centre (CHC) to develop an Iceberg drift and deterioration model and provide upgrades and maintenance to the model. The aim of this reports is to summarize what has been achieved 2009/2010, what is remaining, and identify key issues and practical way forward.
