Summary
Abstract: This database at http://www.icedata.ca describes collisions that have taken
place in the northern hemisphere mainly over the last two hundred years,
principally on the Grand Banks and North Atlantic but also including the waters
of Alaska, Greenland and the Arctic. The site contains the original html
version containing about 450 incidents as well as the new searchable Microsoft
Access version which contains over 670 incidents including ship
characteristics, images, ice charts, damage descriptions and any other known
relevant factors. An Access version of the database is available for those who
do not already have it installed on their computer. The Access database is
updated from time to time as new information is found.
