[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The cosmogenic He-3 data set created during this project provides three major constraints:

*The cosmogenic 3He survey from Mullins Glaciers allows us to calculate for the first time paleo-flow rates of a glacier on the million year time scale. A simple calculation yields a paleo-flow rate of < a few mm y-1 over the last 4 My. This result is in striking agreement with the modern flow rates based ... View entire text
