Abstract : Anomalous (severe) ice conditions occurred during summer 1964 in Melville Bugt. Factors producing the variation are analyzed in order to determine whether the anomaly should have been predicted. Based on historical conditions, however, the ice prediction had been made as accurately as possible. The variation was attributed to severe weather conditons. (Author)
