Abstract : The bulletin is No. 53 in a series of annual reports on the International Ice Observation and Ice Patrol Services and for the first time is reported on a season to season basis rather than on a calendar basis. The authority for the mission, forces assigned, and method of operation of the International Ice Patrol (IIP) during the 1967 season are described. All Ships reporting ice and weather to the IIP in 1967 are tabulated. Figures illustrating the ice conditions for the Grand Banks are included. Pre-season activities, including the 1966 northern ice surveys are illustrated. (Author)
