AIDJEX Bulletin No. 12 reports the preliminary results of several projects which were carried out during the 1971 AIDJEX Pilot Study (March-April 1971, in the Beaufort Sea 550 km north of Tuktoyaktuk, NWT, Canada). These projects include a study of a multiyear pressure ridge; 25 cm coherent, synthetic-aperture radar observations of sea ice from aircraft; measurements of (atmospheric) turbulence in the near-ice layer; and water stress and ocean current measurements. Also included in the Bulletin are: a paper on water and ice motion during the 1970 AIDJEX Pilot Study (March-April 1970, Beaufort Sea); two papers on the study of sea-ice pressure ridge statistics; and the table of contents of Trudy (Proceedings) of the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute, Leningrad, Vol. 303 (1971) (translation to appear in AIDJEX-72-16 and AIDJEX-72-17, AIDJEX Bulletin Nos. 16 and 17, TT 72-50022).
