42 Arctic Journal MOLLOY, Arthur E. MULLER, Fritz ARMSTRONG, Terence Arctic: Journal of the Arctic Institute of North America. Volume 15, No. 2,June 1962
Arctic Institute of North America, Montreal , 1962, 
(Arctic). Arctic : Journal of the Arctic Institute of North America. Volume15, No. 2, June 1962. Montreal : Arctic Institute of North America, 1962. Pp [85]-171,(1). Illustrated. Maps. 8vo, illustrated green stapled wrappers. Includes: Arthur E. Molloy's "Arctic Science and the Nuclear Submarine" (pp 86-91) - "The entire Arctic Ocean has now ceased to be remote and is open to study on a year-round basis by nuclear submarines (Strong 1961). Admittedly, there are limitations to the use of a nuclear submarine for arctic research, but the advantages heavily out-weigh the disadvantages. First among the advantages to be gained through the use of this type of vehicle is mobility (Lyon and Boyle 1962). The nuclear submarine is a self-contained community capable of operating under all arctic conditions for extended periods of time. Its mobility is not a function of pre-determined drift patterns,for the submarine can be directed to any desired place, at a wide range of speed and depth. With its special equipment, such as underwater television and SONAR, it can "see" and "hear" below the surface (Steele 1962). There is adequate space for modest laboratory facilities, a controlled atmosphere, and accommodation for a scientific staff, who are comfortable and have every incentive for conducting research (Molloy 1961). Another advantage, andan equally important one, is the natural protection that the arctic enviro nment offers to the submarine. The polar ice pack that presents such serious obstacles to the conduct of oceanographic research from the surface can be used to advantage by the nuclear submarine. It provides a nearly homogeneous environment free from disturbances of weather and other factors that the oceanographer encounters in the open ocean. The advantages of submarine research in the Arctic are even more readily apparent after evaluating the accomplishments of the U.S. Navy's arctic submarine cruises during the past few years. The floor of the Arctic Ocean was sounded continuously during each cruise (Lyon and Boyle 1962). As a result of this, there is now more information available on the bathymetry of the Arctic Ocean than had been obtained during the previous 75 years of arctic exploration. We have now more data relating to the ice pack over broad areas and under various seasonal conditions than ever before. Ice and water samples, as well as bathythermograph observations, also have been obtained at various points in the arctic basin (LaFond 1960). In addition the submarine itself has been a prime research tool whose advantages have not been limited to being a vehicle for transportation (Lyon and Boyle 1962). For example, surfacings through the ice have answered some of the questions relating to the ice cover. In many respects the Arctic has been the laboratory and the submarine the instrument withwhich the research was carried out (Lyon 1961). The arctic cruises of the U.S. Navy submarines have not been conducted as purely oceanographic ventures, but diversified scientific programs have been carried out during each of the cruises (Strong 1961). It is manifest from these modest beginnings that Arthur E. Molloy's "uclear submarine is an ideal platform from which to launch a research program of rather large dimensions." (quoted from pp 88-89).

Directions of ice movement, orientation and composition of till-fabric, and patterned ground were examined; samples from peat bogs were analyzed and radiocarbon-dated. It is tentatively concluded that: the landforms were shaped by ice movements from the southwest and later the northwest; andmost of the canyon formation occurred before deglaciation (about 5700 yrs ago) while the level of the ice surface and the water table within the ice were falling, and the ratio of water to ice increasing.

60 BACK, George) HOUSTON, C.Stuart, (ed.) MacLAREN, I.S. FRANKLIN, John Arctic Artist : The Journal and Paintings of George Back, Midshipman with Franklin, 1819-1822. First Edition in dustjacket
McGill-Queen's University Press, Montreal / Kingston, 1994, ISBN:0773511814 
(BACK, George). HOUSTON, C.Stuart, (ed.). Arctic Artist: The Journal and Paintings of George Back, Midshipman with Franklin, 1819-1822. Montreal / Kingston : McGill-Queen's University Press, 1994. First Edition. Pp. (4),[v]-xxviii,[1]-403,(1), including plates (many of which are in colour). Maps in text. 4to, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Commentary by I.S. MacLaren. A handsome piece of book production. ""Arctic Artist" is the liveliest and most complete account of Sir John Franklin's tragic first expeditionto the Arctic. George Back's prose captures the drama of the journey, whil e his superb watercolour sketches reveal the beauty and wonder of this northern land. Published for the first time, this is the complete text of Back's journal. "Arctic Artist" completes Stuart Houston's trilogy of the journals of Franklin's officers, and isl is particularly valuable because it is the only one that records the entire expedition; Franklin himself relied on it for his own published account of the journey. Both the journal and Back's earlier notes have been edited by Houston, who provides an introduction and extensive annotations, as well as synopses of the frank comments regarding the expedition recorded in the various journals of the Hudson's Bay fur trade posts. I.S. MacLaren's commentary on Back's paintings reveals a midshipman-artist of exceptional talent. Conversant with the artistic conventions and aesthetic temper of his age, Back used his sketch-books not only to depict the expedition's progress but also to capture his imaginative response to the northern wilderness. MacLaren edits and comments on two other documents written by Back during the expedition: a candid letter to his brotherand a poem dramatizing the disaster that claimed the lives of eleven of th e twenty explorers in Franklin's party." - from the dj flap.
