Mass Balance of Arctic Glaciers
Principal Investigator: Koerner, Roy M
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: This project is part of a glacier program covering four ice caps and one glacier, one of the ice caps being in the Northwest Territories (Melville Ice Cap). The work involves measuring poles drilled into the ice to see if more ice and snow is melting than it is accumulating. These data are an excellent indicator of climate change. The indications so far are that, although the ice cap is getting sm...
