Castle Creek Glacier

Drs.. Owens and Déry of the IWRG have teamed up with other UNBC Faculty, staff and students in a comprehensive study of the current state and future fate of glaciers in BC and Alberta, with particular emphasis on the Castle Creek Glacier, near McBride BC.  Stephen has established a weather station in proximity of the glacer (part of his Cariboo Alpine Mesonet) to provide valuable weather data for this study. Dr Owens and others have examined  the hydro-meteorological drivers and the dynamics of suspended sediment in the forefield of the Castle Creek glacier.
