Record #199791:

Half a century of measurements of glaciers on Axel Heiberg Island, Nunavut, Canada / J.G. Cogley, W.P. Adams, M.A. Ecclestone.

Title: Half a century of measurements of glaciers on Axel Heiberg Island, Nunavut, Canada / J.G. Cogley, W.P. Adams, M.A. Ecclestone.
Author(s): Cogley, J. G.
Adams, W. P.
Ecclestone, M. A.
Date: 2011.
In: Arctic. (2011.), Vol. 64(3) (2011)
Abstract: Illustrates value of longevity in high-latitude glaciological measurement series with results from programme of research in Expedition Fiord area of western Axel Heiberg Island that began in 1959. Investigations in following decades have focused on: glacier zonation; thermal regime of polythermal White Glacier; and contrast between evolution of White Glacier (retreating) and adjacent Thompson Glacier (advancing until recently). Mass-balance monitoring, initiated in 1959, continues to 2011.
Notes:

Arctic. Vol. 64(3) :371-375 (2011).
