Gases in Firn Air and Shallow Ice at the Proposed WAIS Drilling Site
Entry ID: saltzman_0440602

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: These data are trace gas measurements of air extracted from ice core samples from the West Antarctic Ice Sheet Divide A core (WAIS-D 05A). This core was dry-drilled at the WAIS site during the 2005-2006 field season. A total of 57 ice core samples were analyzed for nine trace gas species: ethane (C2H6), propane (C3H8), n-butane (n-C4H10), carbonyl sulfide (COS), carbon disulfide (CS2), methyl ... View entire text

Description: The U.S research community is conducting a deep ice coring project in West Antarctica for studies of climate, ice sheet history and cryobiology. This project is collecting a deep ice core from the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) ice flow divide and integrating approximately 20 separate but synergistic projects to analyze the ice and interpret the records.
