Group: Summary

   The collection consists of approximately 50,000 high-quality negatives and 
   transparencies showing ice cover impact on navigation or hydroelectric 
   operation from 1963 to 1973. Coverage is not systematic or complete. Indexing 
   has not been undertaken, but latitude and longitude of flight line begin and 
   end points are logged. Photos from many flights have been made into 
   photomosaics that can be used on-site as a gross index to the 9-inch roll 
   negatives. Photographic flights were carried out by a U.S. Air Force 
   photomapping wing, using flight lines selected by NOAA Lake Survey Center (now 
   Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory).

   The collection is available for on-site use only by appointment.
