On the Cover: At high latitudes, the sea-ice edge toward the land is commonly marked by a flaw lead at the fast ice/pack ice boundary. This lead opens and closes as the pack ice moves. For short periods, open water may exist in the lead; but more often, the lead will be covered with new ice, because of the rapid ice formation during the cold winter months. Location: Northern Baffin Bay, NW coast of Greenland at 75 ° N. (Photo by Konrad Steffen). [ See article by Barry et el., page 4]
