Abstract

A newly discovered spring on northern Ellesmere Island has significant discharge and heat flow, in a region characterized by an arctic desert environment. Large gully features and ice filled channels are formed by perennial discharge. Results provide new understanding of controls of deep groundwater circulation in regions of thick permafrost.
