ARRANGEMENTS BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA RESPECTING JOINT DEVELOPMENT AND OPERATION OF WEATHER OBSERVATION STATIONS IN THE CANADIAN ARCTIC REGION

Editorial Note

These arrangements, initiated by the Department of State in early 1946, were postponed until 1947 by a decision of the Canadian Cabinet. The matter was reopened by Canadian note No. 16 of February 13, 1947, addressed to Ambassador Ray Atherton. Technical aspects of the operation were agreed upon at a conference held in Ottawa on February 25 and 26, and summarized in Canadian note No. 32 of March 18, 1947. United States confirmation of the agreement, which pertained to 1947 and 1948 operations only, was delayed by planning for 1949 developments in the weather station program. These plans were referred to in Canadian note No. 181 of December 22, 1947. A further attempt to formalize the 1947–1948 agreement was made in Canadian note No. 661 of October 4, 1948, to the Secretary of State from the Canadian Chargé d’Affaires at Washington. It was not followed up by the Department because of the lateness in the time period of the first agreement and the possibility of negotiating an altered arrangement for 1949.

Documentation on this subject, including the above-mentioned notes and a related memorandum dated June 11, 1946, from Acting Secretary of State Acheson to William L. Clayton, Chairman of the interdepartmental Air Coordinating Committee, concerning existing and potential territorial claims in the Arctic region, and United States policy regarding the so-called “sector” claims, is in Department of State file No. 842.9243.
