Mass Balance of the Collins Ice Cap on King George Island in West Antarctica
Entry ID: PRIC_GLACIO_MASSBAL

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Mass balance observations were carried out during the 1991/1992 Chinese
Antarctica Expedition, when 64 stakes and 15 snow pits were established on
Little Dome. Nine sets of simultaneous observations were conducted over the
course of a full year. Combined with ice core data, the mass balance pattern
of the ice cap can be obtained, providing estimates to mass balance variations
over the past 20 years.
