AbstractSystematic aerial surveys of sea ice in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago and adjacent waters were started by the Polar Continental Shelf Project in 1961 and were concluded at the end of 1978. During these years, at various intervals between March and November, successive sets of observations have been made of distributions of sea-ice types and features, progression of break-up, advance of ablation, patterns of movement and the sequence of freeze-up. These observations, for 197 4 to 1978, are presented on 64 coloured maps, 28 x 38 cm, accompanied by written descriptions, selected satellite imagery and seasonal summaries. This atlas is the last of a set of three. The first, entitled Sea Ice Atlas of Arctic Canada 1961-1968 was published in 1976. The second volume Sea Ice Atlas of Arctic Canada 1969-1974 was published in 1977.
