Title: Greenland Patrol: Alatok - Where was this ship?
Post by: Randi on July 26, 2017, 11:06:32 pm
For this set of records we need very simple information for a first pass.

Tracking Arctic journeys:
We need to know which log books contain journeys to the Arctic, in the Arctic, or from the Arctic.
Kevin has suggested that we consider anything beyond 55 N as being in the Arctic. However, it appears that 45 N may be a better choice for the Atlantic; please use that for now.

Our long-range goal is to map the edge of the Arctic ice both in the Atlantic and in the Pacific.
Our short-range goal is to locate the useful log books so that we can go back for more details.

Details to report:
1) The year, the months when your ship was on a journey to the Arctic, in the Arctic, or on its way home from the Arctic, and whether it was in the Atlantic or Pacific.
2) If your log has a page specifying the journeys or you found a list elsewhere, please report that finding.
3) There is no need to record the presence or absence of ice.
4) Examples: Cold War Group: Staten Island - Where was this ship? (http://forum.oldweather.org/index.php?topic=4694.msg143997#msg143997) and Cold War Group: Eastwind - Where was this ship? (http://forum.oldweather.org/index.php?topic=4689.msg144268#msg144268)

Just put a note in the topic to let people know what dates you are working on ;)
