AbstractPart of the Canadian contribution to the USCGC Healy Ice Trials was to provide complete documentation of the ice regimes encountered during the first stage of the Ice Trials. During its voyage from Halifax, Canada to Nuuk, Greenland the ship transited 118 different ice regimes. An overview of the voyage is presented using eight of those regimes. A photograph of the ice regime is given, along with a summary of the total ice concentration, constituent ice types, climatic conditions and ship speed. The ice severity in each regime is indicated by the Ice Numeral, which is calculated based upon the requirements outlined in the Arctic Ice Regime Shipping System (AIRSS).
