Mike Demuth hails from Calgary and has studied snow and ice in its various forms on land and water for the last 35 years with the National Research Council, Environment Canada and Natural Resources Canada as a glaciology/cold regions research scientist. He is also Senior Research Fellow with the University of Saskatchewan’s Centre for Hydrology and Adjunct Professor with the University of Victoria’s Northern and High Country Weather Impacts Laboratory. Mike’s attention to studying changes in Canada’s mountain West and the Canadian Arctic was secured by his participation in a research expedition to Mount Logan in 1981. This book is his first public outreach endeavour regarding climate science, water and the stories that glaciers tell. He and his wife Margaret divide their time between Lund, BC and Braeside, Ontario, and have two daughters and three granddaughters.
