Abstract : The report is the third in a series of reports describing winter ice conditions in Nares Strait. Three flights were made in 1972-73, using radar scope photography on the first and Sideways Looking Airborne Radar on the others. The ice consolidated even earlier than in the previous year, in response to another winter of comparatively calm winds. (Author)
