Group: Summary

   The project described in this documentary was a pilot study conducted in 1972 
   in preparation for the AIDJEX main experiment of 1975 to 1976. The study 
   included a main camp on drifting sea ice in the Beaufort Sea north of Alaska 
   along with two satellite camps forming a station triangle with a 100 km side 
   length. A detailed description of the observational program and a running 
   account of the results can be found in the AIDJEX Bulletin series published 
   between 1970 and the end of the project in 1978. The Bulletin is accessible in 
   hard copy in the Roger G. Barry Resource Office for Cryospheric Studies at 
   NSIDC. The Polar Science Center at the University of Washington maintains an 
   AIDJEX electronic library. It includes downloadable copies of the contents of 
   all 40 AIDJEX Bulletins, AIDJEX Operations Manuals for the Pilot Study and the 
   Main Experiment, and other resources. 

   The film was produced by Hannes Zell and Dieter Wittich of Vienna, Austria 
   under an arrangement with the AIDJEX Project Office at the University of 
   Washington. The transfer of the original 16 mm film to electronic medium was 
   performed by Victory Studios of Seattle, Washington, USA. The digital copy was 
   donated to NSIDC by Dr. Norbert Untersteiner, AIDJEX Project Director.
