Summary
Abstract: This database at http://www.icedata.ca contains reconstructed ice charts for
the ice months January to April from 1810 to 1958 for ice conditions off the
east coast of Newfoundland and the Grand Banks. It also contains the
transcribed texts from the original contemporary ice reports from which the
charts were drawn along with data tables of the latitude and longitude of
iceberg and sea ice sightings and the estimated ice edge. The ice extent in
square kilometers is given for each month and is occasionally updated with
current information.
