Sea ice in December 2008

In the beginning of the month, sea ice was about 50n.m. west and westnorthwest off Westfjords and on the 9th of December, sea ice was closest to shore, according to satellite images about 25n.m. north off Horn.  Easterly winds were dominant in the Greenland Strait up until the end of the month, but from the 25th of December southerly winds were dominant.  The sea ice had drifted far off shore and was miles away around the holidays, in spite of the change in wind.  The Met office issued five announcements with information about position of sea ice in the month, one dispatch was received from a ship on the 18th. The Coast Guard did not go on an exploration flight this month.
