Western Canadian Cryospheric Network
The Western Canadian Cryospheric Network (WC2N) is a consortium of six Canadian universities, two American universities and government and private scientists who are examining the links between climatic change and glacier fluctuations in western Canada. Glaciers provide windows into past and present behavior of the climate in the North Pacific region since they they are well distributed in western Canada and are sensitive to changes in precipitation and temperature. Glaciers are also important for western Canada since they serve as frozen reservoirs of freshwater.
