Prevailing monthly and seasonal surface wind directions were obtained from (1) weather records for 21 coastal stations around the Arctic Ocean and (2) a series of U.S. Navy wind charts for 15 to 20 locations in the arctic marginal seas and the ocean's interior. This information was combined and analyzed to develop 2 charts which depict the surface flow of air in these areas during the mid-summer and mid-winter months. Since the ice floe stations used in the offshore wind analysis are not permanently located, the Arctic Ocean was selectively divided into 6 zones. Three of these zones separate Polar regions north of 84 degrees latitude, and 3 other zones each separate the seas bordering the north coasts of Europe, Siberian Russia and North America.
