Abstract : Project BIRDS EYE is an Arctic ice research program conducted by the U. S. Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVOCEANO). Its aims include improvement of objective ice observing techniques, development and testing of new procedures for data acquisition, instrument testing and evaluation, refinement of forecasting techniques, and continuing acquisition of statistical and historical data for present and future application to military Arctic operations. Data continuity, basic to understanding the character and behavior of Arctic ice, is provided by utilization of aerial observation platforms. (Author)
