Abstract
SLAR imagery of Nares Strait was obtained on three flights carried out in January, March, and August of 1973 in an Argus aircraft equipped with a Motorola APS-94D SLAR; the March flight also covered two lines in the Arctic Ocean, from Alert to the North Pole and from the Pole down the long 4 degree E. meridian to the ice edge at about lat. 80 degrees N. No observations on the ground were possible, but some back-up was available on all flights from visual observations recorded in the air, and on the March flight from infrared line-scan and vertical photography.
