Abstract

A study of the general patterns of sea ice growth and decay has been made for the years 1964 to 1974. From a comparison of individual years an 'early' and a 'late' pattern of both ice advance and ice retreat are recognised. Mean daily sea-level pressure patterns for June-July and for October-mid-November are examined and a relationship is established between the type of ice advance or retreat pattern and the synoptic circulation over the area.- from Author
