Abstract
A reconnaissance was made of one of two small ice caps near the Robeson Channel coast of northern Ellesmere Island. It is shown that, after a period of net wastage, the ice cap is now thickening slightly and extending its margins. The present regime of the ice cap is a direct result of generally cooler summers in the last decade.
