The extent and manner in which salts are excluded from pond water during ice formation: ice core analysis, weather data and water samples
Entry ID: K081_2001_2002_NZ_2

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The hypothesis that stratification in the ponds of the McMurdo Ice Shelf is induced during the freezing process, as salts are excluded from the ice matrix during freezing was investigated over several seasons. The aim of this work is to improve our ability to model the ice formation and melt process, which we hypothesise to be a key driver of pond systems, thereby allowing us to understand how ...
