Greenland Patrol: Nogak - Where was this ship?
« on: July 29, 2017, 04:07:15 am »
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.

Purpose:
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? and Cold War Group: Eastwind - Where was this ship?

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

Well...
Since we are currently defining north of 45 degrees as Arctic in the Atlantic (55 in the Pacific), Sydney and Argentia are in the Arctic.
I put it in the table as To Arctic. These notes that you and other people make here will allow the ice hunters to refine their searches.

Just spotted this after adding June. I thought we were going for 50 degrees in Atlantic. From memory all the Lats at sea in early June were greater than 45.
