Entry ID: WAIS_Permeability

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set lists the measured snow and firn density and permeability at
sites in West Antarctica. The measurements were done on consecutive ten-
centimeter sampling in snow pits and from firn cores down to approximately
fifteen meters depth. The site locations are as follows:
