Ross Ice Drainage System (RIDS) Glaciochemical Analysis
Entry ID: NSIDC-0266

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Ross Ice Drainage System (RIDS) project provides a high-resolution record of atmospheric chemical deposition taken from several ice cores and snow pits located at sites within or immediately adjacent to the Ross Ice Drainage System. Three sites were visited during a 1995 traverse in inland West Antarctica. The traverse was 158 km, trending 26° from Byrd Surface Camp. The core from site A ... View entire text
