AbstractA field program was designed and carried out on board six Canadian Coast Guard icebreakers during the summer of 2002. Information was collected on the ice conditions (ice regimes) and the surface characteristics (stage of melt) of the ice. In total, 201 ice regimes were documented and photographed. Based on this information, the severity of the ice regimes was evaluated in terms of the Canadian Arctic Ice Regime Shipping System (AIRSS). This paper provides a description of the data collection program and an overview of the results. The program was highly successful in all aspects.
