Borehole Optical Stratigraphy at Siple Dome
Entry ID: UW_BOS_SDM

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set contains the Borehole Optical Stratigraphic (BOS) profile for a
borehole (designated K) approximately 50 M from the main borehole at Siple
Dome, West Antarctica. BOS is a system comprising a borehole video camera
(downward-looking) and post-processing software. The post-processing software
samples a ring of pixels around the side of the borehole wall, and ... View entire text
