	            The International Ice Patrol (IIP) has been collecting information on iceberg 
	            activity in the North Atlantic since 1911. This database contains the data 
	            from these sightings from 1960 through most current processing. The IIP data 
	            files include latitude and longitude of sighted icebergs, coded iceberg size 
	            class, date and time of sighting, last date sighted, number of days within the 
	            observation area, and several fields pertaining to the iceberg's 
	            model-predicted location. The IIP area of responsibility is 40° N to 65° N and 
	            39° W to 57° W. Note, the IIP area of responsibility prior to 2006 was 40° N 
	            to 52° N and 39° W to 57° W. Data are in space-delimited ASCII text files and 
	            are available via FTP.
