First ice (1600-2000) and not even above 55N   :)

Ah yes. He's on the East Coast now. Think of the Titanic. Ice will be a long way south compared to the Pacific side of the continent. No sense even looking when the ship is on the Atlantic side. There will be ice.  ;)

For links like https://catalog.archives.gov/id/24338174, if I click the X to close the window I can scroll merrily through the pages :-X

Don't tell anyone official!!!  ;)

You were more patient than I. When I saw the message come up, I went away...  :-[

Ten days of hydrographic and oceanographic surveys in Prince of Wales Strait. Just to complicate matters, map errors from maps of that time, frequent course changes in one hour, differences between actual distance travelled and distance indicated by revs meant that many of the calculated positions were over land, and which had to be adjusted to get them over water. One of the positions is over land, but it has been corrected in the spreadsheet, but not in this image.

You're correct. The links to the individual images are OK. I was checking the NARA URL for the logbook.

Finished ice hunting for the 1955 voyage

Unfortunately didn't notice the ice section in the synoptic observations till quite late in the voyage  :(

No problem. I'll watch for them as I process the data.

When uploading files, would it be OK to compress all the XML files for, say a month, into a ZIP file and upload that instead?
I think it would save time.

It's OK with me. Let's see if it's OK with Bob; he's the one in charge of that part of the project.

February 20, 1953

This must have been an amazing sight!

1530 observed approximately (15,000) fifteen thousand Eider Ducks flying in southeasterly direction over the ice.

Ice hunters can't be without clothes for very long. This journey plotter's ship must be in the Med or the Red Sea.  ;)
