With global climate change and the gradual melting of ice in the Arctic region, the Northeast Arctic (NE) route, as a vital shipping lane connecting Asia and Europe, is increasingly attracting the attention of the international maritime community. This study aims to explore the impact of hydrological and meteorological data obtained from the Northeast Arctic route on ship navigation, particularly in terms of navigation safety and efficiency. By analyzing specific hydro-meteorological conditions of the Northeast Arctic route, such as sea ice distribution, temperature changes, ocean currents, and wind speed, this paper discusses how these factors influence shipping strategies, fuel efficiency, and navigational safety. Additionally, this study utilizes a series of actual navigation cases to analyze navigation data under different meteorological conditions, thus gaining a more comprehensive understanding of the specific impact of these natural factors on ship navigation. The results show that accurate hydro-meteorological data is crucial for improving the safety and efficiency of navigation on the Northeast Arctic route. Comprehensive analysis of this data can assist ships in more effectively planning their routes, predicting and responding to potential natural risks, thereby ensuring navigational safety and enhancing transport efficiency.
