Sea ice in December 2009

December 18th two reports from ships were issued about an iceflake located approximately 50 nm NW of Barði which was drifting southwards. IMO informed, on its web site, that northerly winds would be prevailing the following days, which would most likely lead to further southward drift of the iceflake. The Icelandic Coast Guard did not go on ice-survey flight. The sea ice in the Greenland Strait moved eastwards in the month.

Easterly and northeasterly winds prevailed in the Greenland Strait in the first half of the month. Northerly and northeasterly winds were from 19th to the 29th and the last two days of the year weak westerly winds were in Greenland Strait.
