Abstract:

Birds Eye 8-69 was a regularly scheduled Arctic Ocean ice reconnaissance mission covering the North American sector of the Arctic Basin, including the Greenland Sea, Denmark Strait and Baffin Bay between 17 November and 3 December 1969. Ice observations were taken under twilight or moonlight conditions except southeast of Greenland. Adverse weather andor illumination limited ice observing in certain areas. The ice edge in the Greenland Sea and Denmark Strait was located south of its normal position. Two isolated giant floes or possible ice islands were located northwest of Alaska. Ice Island T-3 was located at 85 deg 28 min N, 120 degrees W. Author
