AbstractThe Grand Banks Icebergs Database has been augmented recently by all the available iceberg data from the International Ice Patrol (IIP) annual bulletins prior to 1960. Transcription of all the iceberg records from the Hydrographic Bulletin (HB) of the U.S. Hydrographic Service is also underway. This weekly bulletin was published from 1889 until 1954, although only data from the 1920s have been transcribed so far. Trends in iceberg reporting in relation to those of the International Ice Patrol are discussed, along with trends in iceberg numbers which show a sharp decline after many years of high numbers.
