Mass Balance of Arctic Glaciers
Principal Investigator: Koerner, Roy M
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The research, being carried out on four ice caps and one glacier, will determine if the ice at these locations is melting faster than it is accumulating. Researchers will fly out of Resolute Bay, Nunavut, to the automatic weather station located on the ice cap, to check instruments and collect snow samples (to check the acid content of the snow). Local travel to research sites is by snowmobile. So...
