Abstract
This paper draws inferences on climatic trends in the Arctic from work done over the decade previous to 1970 on a number of long lived climate dependent Arctic features. Dating of material found at the Ward Hunt Ice Shelf, and measurements of oceanographic parameters in Disraeli Fiord behind the shelf as well as on glacial lakes have helped establish the lifetime of these features and contributed to an understanding of long-term climatic variations since. Measurements on the Gilman Glacier, the plug of ice at the mouth of Nansen Sound, together with those of mass balance on the Ward Hunt Ice Shelf have led to predictions of onset of a shorter termed cooling cycle.
