NORTH AMERICAN ICE SERVICE PRODUCTS
** Change to National Weather Service (NWS) FTP MAIL SERVICE: **
The NWS will be upgrading its automated FTP Mail Service and phasing out the current system that is used to generate automatic receipt of the daily PIEA88 iceberg chart. The legacy system will continue to be operable as a back-up system until 06OCT16, which is when the transition to the new system will be completed. In addition to the switch, from 18OCT16 thru the second week of November, the legacy system will be transferred from College Park, MD to Boulder, CO; during this time, there will be no back-up to the FTPMail system. NWS has updated their website to notify users. Procedures for the automated email will remain the same; however, users must use the new email address: NWS.FTPMail.OPS@noaa.gov
The North American Ice Service provides year-round maritime safety information on iceberg and sea ice conditions in the vicinity of the Grand Banks of Newfoundland and the east coast of Labrador, Canada. The purpose of the NAIS Iceberg Bulletin and Chart is to advise mariners of the estimated iceberg extent within the region.
Ships are encouraged to immediately report sightings of icebergs or stationary radar targets that may likely be icebergs to the nearest Canadian Coast Guard MCTS Station or through INMARSAT using Service Code 42, as there is no charge when using this code.
