The field measurements during three arctic expeditions are summarized. In 1978 a research station was established on the ice in the central Chukchi Sea and measurements of temperature, salinity, and current were taken in the water column. In 1979 a station was established on the ice in Kane Basin, north of Thule, Greenland, and temperature and salinity profiles were obtained. Ice temperature was monitored at several depths near the camp.
