Abstract
A plug of multi-year sea ice lies in the entrance to Nansen Sound between Ellesmere and Axel Heiberg Islands. We discuss the history of the plug, give the results of observations made in 1980 and show that the plug is made up of sea ice of different ages and that it is still increasing in area. The present thickness of the ice in the oldest part of the plug averages about 6 metres.
