Abstract:

Data collected by ice observers from the U.S. Naval Oceanographic Office on polar research flights known as BIRDS EYE missions are contained in this report covering the first mission of 1968 BE 1-68. The manner in which these data were recorded is discussed. BIRDS EYE 1-68 observations were made under daylight conditions. Ice edges were obtained by radar. Overall ice concentration in Baffin Bay was predominately eight- to ten-tenths big floe with the primary age being noted as thick winter. Sea surface temperatures were obtained with airborne radiation thermometer ART during this mission. Sea ice features in the approaches to Thule, Greenland, were mapped by infrared imagery. The aircraft is a specially configured Super Constellation manned by Air Development Squadron Eight VX-8 based at the Naval Air Station, Patuxent River, Maryland. Author
