Summary
Abstract: The goal of this collaborative pilot project was to obtain the first petrological, geochemical, magnetic characterization of subglacial and basal sediments recovered from boreholes drilled to the base of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS). Over the last two decades, samples of subglacial sediment (till) and basal debris were obtained from several locations across the WAIS (see map of locations, ... View entire text
