Abstract:

A group of four icebergs was marked in the Labrador area, by dropping dyed sand enclosed in thin cardboard containers from Argus and Tracker aircraft onto the icebergs. Each impact produced a small stained area, and there were several on each marked iceberg. These stains were sufficient to allow positive identification of the icebergs during a period of several days. Author
