The USCGC EASTWIND made an oceanographic survey of the Baffin Bay area during the summer of 1968. Ice potential stations were occupied in support of NAVOCEANOs East Arctic Ice Forecasting Program. Additional Nansen cast stations were taken to assist the U.S. Coast Guard in their continual monitoring of the Labrador Current. A comparison of the temperature and salinity data obtained on the EASTWIND survey with data obtained on a similar cruise by USCGC EDISTO in 1967 seems to indicate that during both years the cooling season had begun prior to the survey.
