Summary
Abstract: Examination of the cores from the Dry Valley Drilling Project consisted of, among other studies, grain size, pebble and magnetic investigations. Pebble and sediment sampling from known sedimentary environments was needed to get 'baseline' data to help interpret data from the drill core samples. The areas visited included the Taylor Glacier, Table Mountain and the Crary Ice Rise. At the Crary Ice ... View entire text
