The movement of ice floes in Robeson Channel was followed over a one-week period during August 1973 using television moving-target circuitry from a cliffside base 350 m above sea level. The basis of the method was to subtract a current TV picture from a video tape recording of the same scene made some time previously, the difference imagery being displayed on a monitor. The TV camera was aimed to produce coincidence of a reference point selected near the center of the pre-recorded imagery, and the changes in azimuth and elevation recorded. From these, ice drift velocities were calculated.
