International Ice Patrol Operations

In 1994-5 the U.S. Coast Guard undertook a detailed analysis of all aspects of the International Ice Patrol operation. This study resulted in several reports which may be obtained from the U.S. Coast Guard Research and Development Center (see below for address).
