Abstract : The report is fourth in a series of reports on lake and river ice land-fast sea ice records ice thicknesses observed throughout the North American arctic and subarctic during the 1964-65 and 1965-66 seasons. Information on ice surface conditions, dates of first ice, freeze-over and breakup, and detailed measurements of ice thickness across Alaskan rivers are also included. First reports from the Alaska National Guard on ice thickness measurements on lakes and rivers in the remote regions of interior Alaska are presented. Analyses on maximum observed ice thicknesses reported during the two winters in North America and deviations from the mean ice thickness amounts measured across Alaska rivers between 1961 and 1966 were conducted.
