Glacier mass balance of the Melville South Ice Cap
Principal Investigator: Burgess, David O
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The objectives of this study are: 1) estimate the amount of water equivalent mass the Melville South Ice Cap loses (or gains) on an annual basis, and 2) derive a long-term climate record from glacier measurements and weather station data in order to determine trends in climate change for this region of the Northwest Territories. Mass balance is measured at each of the 21 poles across the ice ca...
