Mass budget studies on the glaciers of Axel Heiberg Island, Canadian Arctic Archipelago, during the summers of 1959–61, resulted in recognition of five distinct zones in the accumulation area. The 1961 data from these zones of the main glacier investigated are presented. The implication is made that the long-term changes in size, elevation and net accumulation of these zones can be utilized as climatic indicators.
