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