Glaciologist Roger Hooke drilled a hole into the Barnes Ice Cap in 1978 and cased it with pipes to measure internal strain in the ice cap. When he finished, the pipes stuck out above the ice by about 0.5 m (1.5 feet). When Miller visited the ice cap in July 2010, at least 32 m (100 feet) of pipe lay on the ground (broken, as shown here). That would equate to an average of about 1 meter (3 feet) of ice lost per year.
