Record #167874:

Break-up and climate change at Canada's northern coast, Quttinirpaaq National Park / Warwick F. Vincent, Derek R. Mueller, Patrick Van Hove.

Title: Break-up and climate change at Canada's northern coast, Quttinirpaaq National Park / Warwick F. Vincent, Derek R. Mueller, Patrick Van Hove.
Author(s): Vincent, Warwick F.
Mueller, Derek R.
Van Hove, Patrick.
Date: 2004.
In: Meridian. (2004.), S/S (2004)
Abstract: Describes recent changes of Ward Hunt ice shelf and its surroundings and their hydrological and ecological consequences. Thinning and break up of ice shelf led to loss of epishelf lake (body of low salinity water overlying ocean water) in Disraeli Fjord. A number of lakes nearby on Ellesmere island lost their ice cover. Emphasises special nature of these ecosystems. Describes how ice shelf and lake changes were observed directly and via RADARSAT, and briefly reviews history of climate and exploration in area, including current 30-year period of accelerated warming. Places changes and reaction to them in context of concern over climate change.
