Abstract : During this period, experiments were conducted at drifting ice stations, ARLIS II and Fletcher's Ice Island (T-3). The use of both stations permitted extensive underwater sound measurements on propagation between the two stations. The occupation of both stations also gave an increased accumulation of geophysical information on the gravity and magnetic fields and the bathymetry of the Arctic Ocean. (Author)
