Group: Summary

   Note: The Russian chart component of this product has been 
   replaced and updated by Sea Ice 
   Charts of the Russian Arctic in Gridded Format, 1933-2006 and the U.S 
   chart component by National Ice 
   Center Arctic Sea Ice Charts and Climatologies in Gridded Format.

   The Environmental Working Group (EWG) was established in June 1995 under the 
   framework of the U.S.-Russian Joint Commission on Economic and Technological 
   Cooperation. In order to expand scientific understanding of the Arctic, the 
   EWG Arctic Climatology Project compiled a set of three atlases on CD-ROM for 
   arctic oceanography, sea ice, and meteorology.

   U.S. and Russian partners developed the EWG Joint U.S.-Russian Arctic Sea Ice 
   Atlas. The U.S. Navy submarine and Meteorology and Oceanography (METOC) 
   community strongly supported this project. The U.S. Arctic Submarine 
   Laboratory and the National Ice Center (NIC)/Naval Ice Center (NAVICE)--a 
   joint agency supported by the U.S. Navy, NOAA, and the U.S. Coast 
   Guard--prepared the data. The Russian Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute 
   (AARI) in St. Petersburg contributed sea ice data and analyses. The 
   Environmental Research Institute in Michigan designed and compiled the CD-ROM 
   and served as managing editor of the project. The contents of the CD-ROM are 
   available via FTP.
