Abstract : Micro-meteorological measurements at an observation-place situated at 1.3 km above M.S.L. on the north-west slope of the Devon Island ice cap are utilized to study the interplay between the energy transfers above and below the snow surface in various weather situations. The calculations of the energy budget is checked by summing up all energy fluxes during three observation-periods covering the summers of 1962 and 1963. (Author)
