The report describes a technique used for measuring ice drift in Robeson Channel, Ellesmere Island, using an X-band radar mounted on a cliff to track transponders placed on the ice. The transponder stations were equipped with wind recorders and, when possible, current meters. The PPI was read manually every hour and a film record made, one shot being taken per minute. The manual readings were fed into a computer and a plot generated in the field. The film record was later digitized and corrected plots made. These are included in the report, together with samples of the field plots.
