RICE: Snow Samples, Roosevelt Island, AntarcticaEntry ID: K049_2010_2012_NZ_3
Abstract: RICE is an international collaboration between New Zealand, USA, Denmark, United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, Italy and China. The aim of the project is to recover a 750 m deep ice core from Roosevelt Island in Antarctica to determine the stability of the Ross Ice Shelf and West Antarctica in a warming world.
The geochemical characteristics of these samples will be correlated with synoptic conditions leading up to the precipitation. In addition, high resolution snow pit data were collected with 1cm resolution from a 3m deep snow pit for geochemical analyses.

Quality LOGICAL CONSISTENCY REPORT: All the data are processed from level-0 to level-1C at EUMETSAT. Throughout this processing a number of quality checks are performed. For more information on this process please see the following document: Dossier definition des algorithmes, IA-DF-0000-2006 Ed: 4 Rev: 2 Date:01/10/2003 D. Blumstein
COMPLETENESS REPORT: Nominally, a granule is either 176 or ... 184 seconds long consisting of 22 or 23 scan lines of 8 seconds each. Each data record contains one scan line. Missing scan lines are the result of transmission errors from the satellite to the ground station.
