Abstract : Airborne temperature surveys of Hudson Bay were accomplished on 8 August 1965 and between 22 and 24 September 1965. The temperature of the surface water was remotely sensed with a Barnes IT-2 Infrared Thermometer, and radiation components were measured with a Suomi-Kuhn net radiometer and Kipp and Zonen solarimeters. The northern part of the Bay cooled about 5C from August to September. In September, the surface water temperatures ranged from slightly more than 5C to slightly less than zero. The temperature pattern showed a cold water tongue extending southward along the western shore. A relatively warm arm extended from Cape Churchill to the northeast part of Hudson Bay. A relatively cold protrusion extended southward between Coats and Mansel Islands in the northeastern part of the Bay. The east-central portion was dominated by a rather large (about 6,000 square miles) cold area with temperatures less than 1C. (Author)
