Sea ice in June 2009

In June the ice-edge was quite off shore. Information from satellite images indicated that sparse ice was to be found within the ice-edge. The information also indicated that the ice-edge came closest to shore about 55-75 nm westnorthwest of the Westfjords. A dispatch regarding icebergs was received by the end of the month, but they were at 66°40N and 25°30W. Information regarding the ice-edge was issued four times by the Met office and the Office also received a photograph, taken from an airplane on its way to from Kulusuk to Reykjavík that showed the ice-edge vividly and the fact that there was sparse ice to be found.

Slow, variant winds were in the Greenland Strait during the month.
