Studies of melting blue ice areas
Entry ID: NPI_00158

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: In the near-coastal regions of Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica,
below-surface ice-melt in blue-ice areas has been observed. The low
scattering coefficients of the large-grained blue-ice, allow
penetration of solar radiation, thus providing an energy source below
the ice surface. The sub-surface meltwater is significant enough to
show up on remote-sensing imagery in the form of ice-covered
lakes. ... View entire text
