ARCTIC ICE DYNAMICS JOINT EXPERIMENT. AIDJEX BULLETIN NO. 12
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).
