Arctic Risk Map
This interactive map communicates risks associated with maritime and offshore activities in the Arctic. The map provides an explanation and visualization of the main environmental and safety concerns in the region, indicating how risk factors change depending on a variety of parameters, such as location and season.
Developed by DNV GL—an international certification body and classification society headquartered in Oslo, Norway—the tool takes into account seasonal distribution of ice and metocean (physical environment) conditions, biological assets, shipping traffic, oil and gas resources, and accident history. It also contains indices for risk levels that affect safety, operability, and environmental vulnerability.
