Record #164867:

The recent advance of the polar ice in the Greenland and Spitzbergen Sea / David Gray.

Title: The recent advance of the polar ice in the Greenland and Spitzbergen Sea / David Gray.
Author(s): Gray, David.
Date: 1881.
In: Royal Geographical Society. Proceedings. (1881.), New series 3(12) (1881)
Abstract: Letter, accompanied by map p.768, showing margin of ice between Iceland and Spitsbergen during 1880 and 1881; advance southwards of ice edge, despite strong northerly winds thought to be due to absence of southerly drift, as lanes of water between floes immediately re-freeze, preventing break-up of ice.
