Ice Core Microparticle Analyses of the Collins Ice Cap on King George Island in West Antartica

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: At the Climate Change Research Center, the University of New Hampshire, USA,
continuous measurement of microparticles was conducted on the top 45m of an ice
core, which was drilled at the summit of Collins Ice Cap. The ice core was
sampled at intervals between 15 to 20cm. In addition, an experimental analysis
of the temporal variation of microparticle content in a liquid was conducted.
