Studies of Climate and Ice Conditions in Eastern Baffin Island, 1971-73

INSTAAR Occasional Paper 9

1974, 77 pp. NTIS PB 298 836.

[From the Preface] Climatological investigations by the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research (INSTAAR) in eastern Baffin Island began in 1970. Since 1971 the program has focused particularly on ice conditions in western Davis Strait–Baffin Bay in relation to weather and climate but, in addition, a variety of other related climatic studies have been carried out. These investigations complement the specific field measurements of energy budgets in relation to fast-ice breakup processes. This report is one of a planned series which presents preliminary results of some of these projects and documents data, and information on field activities.
