AbstractVessels operating in northern waters during the winter months constantly face a hazard of icing. This applies particularly to the Canadian east coast fishing vessels. Though there has been considerable data collected on the amount of marine icing for different environmental conditions, the sources are scattered and not easily accessible. Therefore the Canadian Hydraulics Centre of National Research Council Canada developed a comprehensive Marine Icing Database. The database contains more than 1000 events of marine icing for different environmental conditions collected from year 1970 and onwards. It can be used as a tool to predict icing severity for different environmental conditions, with direct applications on the Grand Banks. This paper describes the database in detail.
