International Ice Patrol (IIP) Iceberg Sightings Database

Metadata Updated: February 2, 2017

The International Ice Patrol (IIP) has been collecting information on iceberg activity in the North Atlantic since 1911. This database contains the data from these sightings from 1960 through most current processing. The IIP data files include latitude and longitude of sighted icebergs, coded iceberg size and shape class, and date and time of the sighting. The IIP area of responsibility is 40° N to 65° N and 39° W to 57° W. Note, the IIP area of responsibility prior to 2006 was 40° N to 52° N and 39° W to 57° W. Data are in space-delimited ASCII text files and are available via FTP.
