Size Distribution of Insoluble Particles in GISP2 IceEntry ID: GISP2_PARTICLES
Abstract: Size distributions of insoluble particles have been measured from the
Greenland Ice Sheet Project 2 (GISP2) ice core in the radius range 0.4
to 4 microns. This research is part of the National Science Foundation
(NSF) GISP2 project.
