Special forecasts for waves

Wave forecasts for particularly vulnerable areas help us to decide whether it is safe to be at sea. Now the service has been upgraded and is displayed in an interactive map solution on the website of BarentsWatch.

Three new areas have now been added: Lopphavet, Vågsfjord and Jomfruland. Jomfruland is of particular interest with regard to recreational traffic this summer. Other vulnerable areas include Hustadvika, Breisundet, Stad, Sletta and Bokna.

BarentsWatch has used the latest technology, enabling information to be presented, organised and distributed with increased flexibility. Eventually, the information will be displayed directly on chart plotters on vessels and on mobile applications for the general public.
