Record #162716:

Glaciers of Canada: Glaciers of the Arctic islands: Ellesmere Island ice shelves and ice islands / Martin O. Jeffries.

Title: Glaciers of Canada: Glaciers of the Arctic islands: Ellesmere Island ice shelves and ice islands / Martin O. Jeffries.
Author(s): Jeffries, Martin O.
Date: 2002.
In: U.S. Geological Survey professional paper. (2002.), Vol. 1386-J1 (2002)
Abstract: Classifies ice shelves of Ellesmere Island, Nunavut, into sea ice (Ward Hunt Ice Shelf), glacier (Milne Ice Shelf) and composite (Alfred Ernest Ice Shelf). Some ice shelves and ice plugs calve, giving rise to ice islands such as Hobson's Choice ice island that drift around Arctic Ocean. Points to future study of climate change through development of satellite monitoring.
Notes:

U.S. Geological Survey professional paper. Vol. 1386-J1 :iii, 147-164 (2002).

In issue Satellite Image Atlas of Glaciers of the World: Glaciers of North America, edited by Richard S. Williams, Jr and Jane G. Ferrigno.
