A small lake on top of Rundfjeld, central Ellesmere Island, at an elevation of approximately m, is frozen to the bottom, and the thickness of lake ice present is at least m. Under present climatic conditions the lake does not thaw to the bottom, even during the warmest summers; i.e., 3 to 4 m of ice still floored the deepest part of.
