Abstract : This is the 67th in a series of annual reports on the International Ice Patrol Service in the North Atlantic. The U.S. Coast Guard conducted the 1981 International Ice Patrol service to observe the southeastern, southern, and southwestern limits of icebergs in the vicinity of the Grand Banks of Newfoundland to inform international mariners of the extent of the iceberg hazard. The 1981 International Ice Patrol season was relatively short with fewer than average icebergs drifting south of 48 deg N latitude. The ice sightings and sea surface temperature reports received were useful in the preparation of the daily ice bulletin and facsimile chart.
