Abstract:

Oceanographic and acoustic measurements were made from an icebreaker and from a camp on an ice floe in the Chukchi Sea during the summer of 1972. The purpose of this report is to present the large amount of data in a form which involves only a minimum amount of processing. These data include temperature and salinity profiles, current measurements, sound level profiles at short range from a 60-kHz pulse transmitter, volume reverberation from biological scatterers, and ice floe movement in relation to wind and currents. The analysis of these data will appear in a subsequent report.
