This title is the result of a pioneering search for long-existing but otherwise unavailable
information stored in archives and buried in old unprocessed reports, sometimes under
lock and key, dating back to 1881. Main body of data comes from ice reconnaissance
flights, shipboard logs, oceanographic expeditions and coastal/island observation
stations. Approximately 80,000 records were processed and mapped.

The Atlas contains charts of iceberg calving regions, monthly distributions, probabilities,
southern extent of icebergs, morphological characteristics and statistical data for all the
Arctic regions stretching from Spitzbergen and Franz Joseph Land via the Siberian
Archipelagos to DeLong Islands, and from the Greenland Sea to the Chuckchi Sea.
