Iceberg areal density is one of the most important and challenging parameters to define accurately for offshore petroleum exploration. The two data sources for iceberg areal density considered here are aerial reconnaissance data collected by the International Ice Patrol and iceberg charts which merge aerial reconnaissance data with other observatio...

... The area density may vary by month and year, but for design, the long-term average is typically of interest. Habib et al. (2016) compare estimates of areal density on the Grand Banks based on available International Ice Patrol (IIP) ice charts versus overflight data. IIP charts are available back as far as 1960, however, only charts from 1984 to present are used when calculating areal density values (the IIP introduced Side Looking Airborne Radar in 1983, which led to a greater degree of confidence in the numbers being reported). ...
