The paper discusses studies of the interior flow field of the Arctic Ocean carried out by the University of Washington during March 1970 at Tuktoyaktuk, Northwest Territories, Canada. Theories of boundary shear stress are discussed briefly. The experiments (under-ice diving operations), which included boundary layer studies, current measurements, gradient current measurement, and ice deformation measurement, are discussed in detail and some preliminary results are summarized. Proposed studies for 1971 are presented. The Bulletin also contains a short paper on another under-ice diving experiment carried out by the University of Washington at Fletcher's Ice Island, T-3, during November 1970.
