Abstract : This report describes activities under the Contract during the period 1 October 1974 to 30 September 1975, at the Geophysical Institute, University of Alaska. During this year, our research efforts have concentrated on three general areas: (1) Collection of climatological radiation data at all four manned AIDJEX stations and publication of data from other Arctic stations; (2) Measurement and analysis of atmospheric turbidity and transmission of radiation, including study of ice crystals and acoustic soundings of the boundary layer; (3) Study of the large-scale features of Arctic stratus clouds, using satellites, and the microphysics of these clouds, using the NCAR Electra aircraft. The results of these studies continue to be published, and abstracts of publications which appeared during the contract period are included in this report.
