GREAT LAKES ICE COVER WINTER 1968-69

Twenty-three ice charts were produced from data collected on eight reconnaissance flights made during the 1968-69 winter ice season. Ice formation was first reported on December 9, 1968. Areas reporting extended from Duluth, Minnesota, on western Lake Superior, to Barcelona, New York, on the south shore of Lake Erie. Winter temperatures generally varied from slightly above normal in the Lake Superior region to slightly below normal on Lake Erie. During the period of maximum ice cover, 40 percent of the surface of Lake Superior was covered. (Author)
