Sea ice in November 2009

The Icelandic Cost Guard went on ice-survey flight November 2nd. Icebergs were observed northwest of the Westfjords, and the one closest to shore was 89 nm NW of Barði. No main ice edge was seen in the Icelandic waters.

The seaice moved southwards in the month, i.e. south by the Blosseville cost of East Greenland. IMO issued a satellite image November 23rd where the sea ice edge could be seen clearly.  It was observed to be approximately 100 nm WNW of Straumnes.

Easterly and northeasterly winds prevailed in the Greenland Strait in the month.
