Summary
Abstract: A shallow firn core drilling program was conducted in eastern Wilkes Land in 1985 by an ANARE glaciological team. In conjunction with surveys carried out on ice sheet topography and snow surface characteristics, 250 m of firn cores were retrieved from 15 shallow boreholes to investigate the firn-pack structure and firn stratigraphy. Firn layer density, grain size and visible stratigraphy were ... View entire text
