AbstractWhile global warming has increased by ~ 10C over the last 50 years parts of the High Arctic have seen a ~2.50C rise over the same period. As a consequence, all of the glaciers and ice caps we monitor in our High Arctic have lost ice by varying amounts. This poster presents this information from four of our ice caps in addition to the changing amount of sea ice that we observe each spring in Jones Sound.
