Ice Thickness Program Collection, 1947-2002 The Ice Thickness Program Collection contains ice thickness and snow depth measurements for 195 sites. Sites such as Eureka and Resolute have ice thickness records that go as far back as 1947. Record length varies from station to station with some of the Arctic stations exceeding 50 years of observations. Measurements are taken at approximately the same location every year on a weekly basis, starting after freeze-up when the ice is safe to walk on, and continuing until break-up or when the ice becomes unsafe. The location is selected close to shore, but over a depth of water which will exceed the maximum ice thickness. 2015-01-07 2016-11-17 Environment and Climate Change Canada open-ouvert@tbs-sct.gc.ca Nature and Environmentice thicknessArcticiceCanadian Ice Service View EC Data Martother http://donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/ice/products/ice-thickness-program-collection/ice-thickness-program-collection-1947-2002 Voir le Dépôt de données d'ECother http://donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/ice/products/ice-thickness-program-collection/ice-thickness-program-collection-1947-2002/?lang=fr
