Abstract : The bulletin is No. 52 in the series of annual reports on the International Ice Observations and Ice Patrol Services. Aerial ice observation and communication statistics are provided.

Not one berg drifted south of latitude 48 degrees N. during the season. The duration and maximum extension of pack ice to the south and east of Newfoundland was subnormal. Weather and climatology of Baffin Bay, Davis Strait, the Labrador Sea, and the exceptional conditions in the North Atlantic Ocean that influenced the ice conditions are presented. (Author)
