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...
