Abstract
The wind records from two stations in northern Ellesmere Island are compared for 52 days in April and May 1971. One station was on the sea ice in Robeson Channel and the other was the weather station at Alert which is only 55 km away. It is shown that the winds recorded at the two locations have little or no relation to each other but are largely governed by the local topography.
