Database of Ship Collisions with Icebergs

As part of the Institute for Marine Dynamics of the National Research Council Canada, Database of Ship Collisions with Icebergs is written and managed by Brian T. Hill. The database contains 560 incidents and "concentrates on iceberg collisions in the North Atlantic off Newfoundland and Labrador but does include a few incidents further north, around Greenland, and also in the fiords of Alaska." The database loads onto one page but is linked to various categories, including a chronological listing and alphabetical listing by vessel. Each brief entry contains a position of impact section, a description of the incident, number of lives lost or injured, and damage done to the vessel. If interested, the database can be viewed as an Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) file for printing or downloaded as a .ZIP file. Mac users should be wary of the Web site version though; it has some bugs with certain Mac browsers, most notably IE 5 for Mac.
