The ongoing retreat of Canada's glaciers will have significant effects on sea level rise, hydropower production, freshwater availability, and river ecosystems. Weather patterns greatly influence the speed at which the ice melts. Installing weather stations on these glaciers and simultaneously measuring melt rates and atmospheric conditions will allow us to better understand the main causes of glacier melt today.
