Abstract : This is the 77th annual report of the International Ice Patrol (IIP). It contains information on Ice Patrol operations, environmental conditions, and ice conditions for the 1991 IIP season. Commander, International Ice Patrol, working under Commander, Coast Guard Atlantic Area, directs the IIP from offices located in Groton, Connecticut. IIP analyzes ice and environmental data, prepares daily ice bulletins and facsimile charts, and replies to requests for ice information. IIP uses aerial Ice Reconnaissance Detachments and, when necessary, surface patrol cutters to survey the southeastern, southern, and southwestern regions of the Grand Banks of Newfoundland for icebergs. IIP makes twice-daily radio broadcasts to warn mariners of the limits of all known ice.
