Tracking icebergs: a brief history of iceberg modelling at the International Ice Patrol / Scott A. Stoermer.

Title: Tracking icebergs: a brief history of iceberg modelling at the International Ice Patrol / Scott A. Stoermer.
Author(s): Stoermer, Scott A.
Date: 2005.
Abstract: Describes early use of Ice Patrol ships to collect oceanographic data to better understand iceberg movement near the Grand Banks of Newfoundland. Documents shift to using data collected in modelling and forecasting iceberg movement. Describes advent of computerized drift models in 1960s and melt models of iceberg deterioration in 1980s, their combination and their incorporation into Ice Patrol operations.
Notes:

Offprint: Proceedings of the Marine Safety and Security Council, the Coast Guard Journal of Safety at Sea. Spring :25-30.
