Abstract
A plug of ice lies in the mouth of Nansen Sound between Ellesmere and Axel Heiberg Islands, its northern boundary joining Lands Lokk to Cape Stallworthy and its southern boundary extending west from White Point. This plug, from 21 to 39 years old and over six metres thick at its northern edge, appears to have formed through normal winter accretion and low summer ablation. Stationary ice formations of this kind provide unique laboratories for the study of the development of multi-year sea ice.
