Following the plan outlined in Perodic Status Report for the period May 16 - August 15, 1949, a test of the relationships that figure in the formula derived by Smith 1931 for predicting the severity of the iceberg season south of Newfoundland, was made. The coefficients of correlation of the Bergen to Skykkisholm and Belle Isle to Ivigtut pressure falls, which form the core of Smiths formula, were recomputed to include all available data through 1948-1949, thus providing twenty-three years in addition to the series employed by him which ended with 1925-1926, or sixty-seven years of information in all.
