Abstract : The effectiveness of Nimbus I Advanced Vidicon Camera System (AVCS) imagery for mapping Arctic sea ice is investigated in this report. A world-wide polar ice pack boundary, mapped solely from Nimbus I data, is presented. Numerous comparisons are made between ice conditions deduced from Nimbus I AVCS and other data sources and it is concluded that an AVCS imagery is highly effective for mapping detailed ice conditions on a week-to-week basis even under relatively poor weather conditions.
