Group: Summary

   The National Snow and Ice Data Center holds a collection of charts depicting 
   ice conditions in the seas off Alaska and western Canada coasts.   Ice edge 
   position and some ice concentration and other information are included, though 
   the notations on the charts are often sparse and discontinuous in space and 
   time, especially for older charts in the series.   These charts, more that 
   6,800 in number, were donated to NSIDC by the estate of  William H. Dehn.  
   NSIDC has partnered with the NOAA Climate Database Modernization Program 
   (CDMP) and the National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) to scan the charts and 
   to make them available through a searchable interface.
