Storm Ice Oil Wind Wave Watch System (SIOWS)

  • is a Web GIS, designed to display various satellite, model and in situ data,
  • it uses developed at SOLab storing, processing and visualization technologies for operational and archived data,
  • it allows synergistic analysis of both historical data and monitoring of the current state and dynamics of the “ocean­-atmosphere-­cryosphere” system in the Arctic region, as well as Arctic system forecasting on the basis of thermodynamic models with satellite data assimilation.

General concept

Data efficiency and representability. Simple to complex.

Primary purpose

Solve the main issues encountered with satellite data: Volume, Access, Format and data Combination. Provide users with a fast and flexible tool to select, analyze and extract products within massive data diversity that match exactly its needs or interest.


The system is implemented as web-application and works in all modern browsers.
