Physical properties of shallow snow samples during the JASE traverse 2007/2008
Entry ID: NIPR_JASE_21

Abstract: To better understand how environmental signals are fixed in snow stratification, two 4m deep pits and two 2m deep pits were dug at several locations. Snow samples were collected for purposes of physical analysis. From the samples, following analyses are to be done: (i) dielectric properties, (ii) density, (iii) 3D structure of pore space, (iv) crystal orientation fabrics and (v) salt inclusions. ...
