Shallow ice core data: LGB traverses 1989-95
Entry ID: LGB_Cor_traverse

Abstract: The Lambert Glacier Basin (LGB) series of five oversnow traverses were conducted from 1989-95. Several shallow depth ice cores (15-60 m) were drilled at selected sites along 2014 km of the main traverse track from LGB00 (68.6543 S, 61.1201 E) near Mawson Station to LGB72 (69.9209 S,76.4933 E) near Davis Station, and at selected sites along a western traverse line from LGB00 toward Enderby Land.

Quality Not all quantities have as yet been measured for all cores. Shallow ice cores to a depth of 15 m (70-80 mm diameter) were hand drilled with the Polar Ice Coring Office (PICO) lightweight fibreglass drill. Deeper cores, 20-60 m, (75-92 mm diameter) were obtained with the use of an in-house designed and built electro mechanical (Wehrle) drill. Cores were generally logged for density (tape measure ...
