Sea Ice Observation Log For Davis, 1993
Entry ID: davis_sea_ice_1993


[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Four ice monitoring stations were set up at Davis in 1993 (a fifth station was added after the first two months), with regular recordings of ice depth, snow cover and ablation made for each station by taking a sea ice core. Observations of the general condition of the drilled cores were also recorded.

Observations were made at irregular intervals (roughly every 1-2 weeks). The observations for each individual day are listed, along with a summary table.

These records are stored as handwritten files, and are archived at the Australian Antarctic Division.
