AbstractThis report is a brief description of the field program conducted off the Western Coast of Newfoundland from 7 - 22 March 1999. The intent of the field program was to characterize the ice regime in this area of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The measured ice properties included the floe size and ridge spacing, the mechanical strength of the ice, sail block size, the ridge topography and snow depth. Ice cores were extracted to determine the ice thickness, the macrostructural properties of the ice, the salinity, temperature and density of the ice. This report documents the ice temperature, salinity, and ridge topography. Some preliminary results of the in situ mechanical strength of the ice are discussed.
