Abstract : This memorandum reports on the development of a Shipboard Icing Observations Questionnaire designed to be used for gathering data on the formation of ice aboard ship. It is intended that copies of this Questionnaire will be distributed to selected fleet units, completed by shipboard personnel and forwarded to the National Weather Record Center at Asheville, North Carolina, for processing together with coincident weather data for which reporting and processing procedures are well established. The promulgation of this Questionnaire, and the study of resulting shipboard ice-formation data constitutes one of two phases of this Laboratory's approach to Ice formation Studies. The second phase, to be pursued concurrently with the first, constitutes a laboratory investigation of ice formation conducted under various rigidly-controlled conditions of temperature, wind velocity and precipitation rate. Taken as a whole, these studies will provide the basis for compiling Geographical Icing Prediction Charts. (Author)
