Entry ID: K064_2004_2007_NZ_3

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Investigation into cryoconite hole chemistry, surface area cover and construction was investigated as part of wider project looking at the seasonal melt regime of the Wright Lower Glacier. Chemistry: Water samples were collected from cryoconite hole water at 10 location on the surface of the glacier. Samples were collected with a syringe after drilling a hole in the ice lid and samples were ... View entire text

Quality This study will fulfill the requirements for the study of a PhD. All of the data will be presented in the thesis upon completion and subsequent publications. Any existing samples that have not been used are stored in a MAF-registered transitional facilities in the Geography department at the University of Otago, New Zealand. Please contact the PhD candidate: Ms Shelley MacDonell.
