Abstract:

Since 1955, the Terrestrial Sciences Laboratory of Air Force Cambridge Research Laboratories has been inv stigating ice-free natural land areas in North and East Greenland Arctic Terrain Research Project 7628 to obtain scientific d ta applicable to aircraft operation in the Arctic. The importance of such data arise from the need for emergency airstrips to serve as alternate sites for the few existing airfields. Increased air traffic over the Arctic, coupled with the extremeAND OFTEN UNPREDICTABLE WEATHER CONDITIONS, FREQUENTLY PRECLUDES THE USE OF ESTABLISHED AIRFIELDS. Author
