Summary
Abstract: Continuous, high-depth-resolution glacio-chemical measurements in ice core from the Norwegian-U.S. Scientific Traverse of East Antarctica. The traverse traveled from the Norwegian Troll Station near the coast in Dronning Maud Land to near South Pole during the 2007/08 field season and then from the Pole back to Troll during the 2008/09 field season. Four 30 to 90 m ice cores were collected on the ... View entire text

Purpose: Together with shallow radar surveys, the ice cores were collected primarily to determine rescent and historical net snow accumulation rates on the East Antarctic Plateau - a large, relatively unexplored region of very low snowfall that plays an important role in ice sheet mass balance and sea level. The second aim was to develop detailed records of recent and historical aerosol concentration and flux in East Antarctica to: (1) help parameterize and validate global circulation models that include aerosols and (2) evaluate human impacts on dust, burning, and industrial pollution aerosols.
