dc.descriptionAbstract: This report summarizes the advances in understanding of the Arctic which have come about since the inception of the ARPA Arctic Surface Effect Vehicle Program in 1970, primarily as the result of CRREL's participation. Major efforts to increase knowledge of sea ice, terrestrial, and coastal topographic features are described. Special emphasis is placed upon the quantitative understanding of pressure ridging. Other areas of major interest are atmospheric characteristics and ecological effects. A list of publications generated is included.-
