Aeria l surveys of sea ice in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago and adjacent waters have been made by the Polar Continental Shelf Project si nce 1961 . During these years, at various intervals between March and November, successive sets of obse rvati ons have been made of dis tri butions of sea-ice types and features, progression of break-up, advance of ablation, patterns of movement and the sequence of freeze-up. These observati ons are presented on 104 coloured maps, 28 x 38 cm, accompanied by written descriptions and se asonal summaries. A previous report published in 1976 entitled "Sea-Ice Atlas of Arctic Canada 1961 -1968" precedes this volume.
