Borehole Optical Stratigraphy: Ice Microphysics, Climate Change, and the Optical Properties of Firn
Entry ID: waddington_0335330

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This award supported a study of the physical nature and environmental origin of optical features (light and dark zones) observed by video in boreholes in polar ice. These features appear to include an annual signal, as well as longer period signals. Borehole logs exist from a previous project, and in this modeling-based project the interpretation of these logs will be improved. We investigated ... View entire text
