Sea ice in March 2011

The Coast Guard went on one ice survey flight this month, 23rd March. The ice edge was closest to land in the following locations:  56 nm from Látrabjarg, 38 nm from Barði, 38 nm from Kögur and 50 nm from Hornbjarg.  No large floes or icebergs were seen at the margin of the ice, but some scattered ice was seen off the ice edge.

An observation from ship off Víkuráll was received 20th March, describing a strip of ice and large dispersed floes, implying the need of caution for passing ships.

On the Greenland Strait, wind was northeasterly or variable most of the time, but in the beginning of the month there were a few days with southwesterly wind directions.
