Snow and ice chemistry data from Vestfonna, Svalbard from April 2007 to May 2009 (Finland)Entry ID: kinnvika-snow-ice
Abstract: Snow pits 2007: the data from 2 snow pits (main summits of Vestfonna ice cap) include a description of snow physical properties (stratigraphy, density) and major ions chemistry.
Shallow ice cores 2007: the data from 2 ice cores drilled at the 2 main summits of Vestfonna ice cap include density and chemical measurements (major ions), and oxygen isotope composition of the ice.
Snow pit 2008: snow ... stratigraphy and chemistry (major ions) from a snow pit on lake (Kinnvika, Nordaustlandet)
Snow pits 2009: the data from 4 snow pits (main summits of Vestfonna ice cap + lake nearby Kinnivika) include a description of snow physical properties (stratigraphy, density) and major ions chemistry.
Shallow ice core 2009: the data from an ice core drilled at the main summit of Vestfonna ice cap include density and chemical measurements (major ions) of the ice.
