Mass Balance of Arctic Glaciers and Arctic Pollution
Principal Investigator: Koerner, Roy M
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The objectives of this ongoing research project are: (a) to monitor climate change by measuring the changing volume of the ice cap and maintaining an automatic weather station, and (b) to monitor air and snow pollution by sampling snow and sending it to be analyzed. Based out of the Polar Continental Shelf Project in Resolute Bay, NU, two personnel will fly by Twin Otter to the ice cap, and liv...

Ice Core Analysis and Glacier Mass Balance
Principal Investigator: Koerner, Roy M
Licenced Year(s): 1995 1992 1991
Summary: The researchers will measure the snow mass at fixed locations on each of four ice caps. This will be compared to similar measures taken last year. Ice and snow samples will also be collected for later analysis for pollutants. Ice cores will be drilled from the Penny Penny Ice Cap at several locations....
