Abstract:

Navigation window refers to the start date, end date of sailing and the navigation period when the sea ice density does not affect the safe navigation of ships in the channel. The sea ice concentration data products (2006–2015) from The University of Bremen in Germany were used to extract the navigational window of the Northeast Passage based on the route sailed by M/V Yong Sheng in 2013. Covering 40% of the total area was chosen to be the threshold of sea ice density. The start date of navigation was the first day when sea ice density was less than 40% in three consecutive days. The end date of navigation was the first day when sea ice density was more than 40% in three consecutive days. This dataset includes: (1) the route sailed by M/V Yong Sheng in 2013; (2) the navigational window of the Northeast Passage from 2006 to 2015. The dataset was archived in .shp, .kmz and .xlsx data formats in six data files with data size of 295 KB (Compressed to two files with data size of 262 KB). The analysis paper related to the dataset was published at Chinese Journal of Polar Research, Vol. 30, No.2, 2018.
