The Arctic Ice Dynamics Joint Experiment (Aidjex) began its main field experiment on the sea ice north of Point Barrow, Alaska, during March 1975. This marks the start of fourteen months of intensive research activity after many years of preparation, including several trial experiments.

C-130 and R4D cargo aircraft landed on a sea ice runway to establish the main Aidjex camp. Three satellite camps with runways suitable for Twin Otter operations were also set up.
