Abstract : During the summer and autumn of 1963, actinometric observations were performed from ice reconnaissance airplanes and the 'Flying Meteorological Observatory' operating in the western sector of the Arctic. The experience gained verified that this was a feasible and inexpensive way of accumulating data on the albedo of ice in the Arctic regions.
