OSMICO aims at providing an simplistic oil/ice/biology drift framework and assessment tool. The service will be open for relevant users in Norway, while the drift framework is open source and will be implemented in the operational system of MET Norway. To the best of our knowledge, this will provide the first operational system for oil in sea ice. In order to demonstrate potential applications of the model system, case studies will be performed in which statistical distributions of virtual oil spills will be explicitly compared to the distributions of selected key Arctic species.
