Abstract
The North Water has been known through the years as a spring and summer phenomenon, causing open conditions in June and July in the latitude of Lancaster Sound, and it is now easy to trace its development at this time of year by means of satellite imagery, both the high-level weather satellite imagery that has been available for some years and the new ERTS imagery, which gives us a larger scale and much greater detail. After break-up, which usually occurs in late July, the North Water loses its identity in a general southward drift of the ice from Kane Basin, and this condition persists until October, when formation of new ice is fairly well advanced.
