Description: Special Report
Abstract: This eighth in a series of reports on lake and river ice and land-fast sea ice presents ice thickness measurements observed throughout the North American Arctic and subarctic during the 1972-73 and 1973-74 winter seasons. Information on surface ice conditions, dates of first ice, freeze-over and breakup, and detailed measurements of ice thickness across Alaskan rivers are also included. Some reports from the Alaska National Guard network on ice thickness measurements in remote areas of western Alaska are also presented. Analyses were made of maximum observed ice thicknesses reported during the two winters, and isoline maps that show the areal distribution of these values across Canada and Alaska were drawn.
