Ice-Atmosphere Interactions on the Devon Ice Cap, Canada: the Effects of Climate Warming on Surface Energy Balance, Melting, and Firn StratigraphyDownload
In order to better constrain the magnitude of projected sea-level rise from Canadian Arctic glaciers during the 21st century warming, it is critical to understand the environmental mechanisms that enhance surface warming and melt, and how the projected increase in surface melt will translate into...
Ice-atmosphere interactions in the Canadian high Arctic: implications for the thermo-mechanical evolution of terrestrial ice massesDownload
Canadian High Arctic terrestrial ice masses and the polar atmosphere evolve co-dependently, and interactions between the two systems can lead to feedbacks, positive and negative. The two primary positive cryosphere-atmosphere feedbacks are: 1) The snow/ice-albedo feedback (where area changes in...
Glacier behaviour in the Karakoram region of the greater Himalaya shows strong spatial and temporal heterogeneity and, in some areas, anomalous trends compared with glaciers elsewhere in High Asia. Knowledge of the mass balance fluctuations of Karakoram glaciers, as well as of the important...
The Canadian Arctic Islands (CAI) contain the largest concentration of terrestrial ice outside of the continental ice sheets. Mass loss from this region has recently increased sharply due to above average summer temperatures. Thus, increasing the understanding of the mechanisms responsible for...
High-resolution regional climate simulations of the Karakoram, Himalaya have been performed for investigation into the atmospheric dynamics in this region, and their role in the Karakoram’s snowfall accumulation and glacial evolution. It has been seen through a combination of field measurements...
