Record #171117:

Recent changes in areal extent of Devon Ice Cap, Nunavut, Canada / David O. Burgess, Martin J. Sharp.

Title: Recent changes in areal extent of Devon Ice Cap, Nunavut, Canada / David O. Burgess, Martin J. Sharp.
Author(s): Burgess, David O.
Sharp, Martin J.
Date: 2004.
In: Arctic, Antarctic, and Alpine Research. (2004.), Vol. 36(2) (2004)
Abstract: Image data from 1959-1660 and 1999-2000 show a 2.4% decrease in surface area of Devon Ice Cap, Nunavut, owing to retreat of wastern tidewater glacier margins and shrinkage of south-western arm. Thinning has also increased bedrock exposure in interior, but north-western edge has advanced slightly since 1960. Volume loss calculated at -67  + or - 12 km³. Response time calculations indicate that most of ice cap is responding to recent climate warming, but north-western region responds to cooler conditions prevailing during Little Ice Age.
