Abstract:

BIRDS EYE 3-71 was a regularly scheduled ice reconnaissance mission covering the North American sector of the Arctic Ocean and included Denmark Strait and Greenland Sea between 2 and 25 March 1971. An airborne laser profilometer system was used to obtain ice surface profiles. An infrared scanner and aerial camera were used to assess ice conditions. Ice observations were made under daylight or twilight conditions. Data were collected at Camp 200 Project AIDJEX on 21 and 23 March. Coincidental USCGC EDISTO WAGB-284 ice data collected in Denmark Strait are appended. Author
