Abstract:

The study provides a comprehensive documentation of iceberg groundings off Canada's east coast. Sophisticated criteria to identify and verify grounding events have been developed. A data base containing iceberg tracking data and related information has been compiled. The data base includes data on 2,728 icebergs tracked at well-site locations by drill-rig radars, 868 icebergs tracked by shore-based radars off Newfoundland and Labrador and in Baffin Bay, 40 icebergs tracked by satellite in Baffin Bay and the Labrador Sea for periods up to 309 days, and about 65,000 iceberg sightings reported by the International Ice Patrol (United States Coast Guard).
