Abstract:

The Corps of Engineers program in northwestern Greenland during the summer of 1954 included a reconnaissance group whose purpose was to investigate a crevassed area on the Ice Cap, to provide information for initiating a research program in 1955. This report on the project, called Blue Ice in the field, is intended, first, as an information source for outlining a research program and, second, as a record of observations in a crevassed area.
