Summary
Abstract: Ice temperature data comes from 10 thermistors set up on
the Canada Glacier since the '94-'95 Antarctic field season. In order
to determine how ice temperature varies with depth below the surface
as well as location within a given depth, two sets of temperatures
were measured at depths of 5, 10, 20, 30, and 50 cm below the
surface.
