Simulation of Ship Navigation in the Arctic
With global warming, the sea ice extent in the Arctic is reducing quickly, which leads to the notion that commercial shipping routes through the Arctic will become navigable. Short-cuts across the Arctic Ocean signifies considerable savings of time, fuel and emissions. However, the existence of sea ice makes the Arctic navigational environment very different from that in an open ocean without any sea ice, and its potential impact on ship performance is not well understood. This is the motivation of this study to simulating a ship navigating in various ice conditions.
