AbstractA survey was made of fourteen Captains of Canadian vessels that operate in Canada's Arctic to extract their thoughts on the current status of operating in the Arctic and to help identify research needs. There was an overwhelming consensus that research on identifying multi-year ice was the top priority. Predictions of ice movement and ice pressure, and locations of large leads or polynya were also identified as important. There was a wide range of disparity on the amount of ice information that they receive on the Bridge of the vessel. There was a general consensus that improvements in interpretation of satellite imagery and better local detection of multi-year ice were top priorities.
