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.
