GPR and GPS Data: Characteristics of Snow Megadunes and their Potential Effects on Ice Core Interpretation
Entry ID: NSIDC-0282


Summary
Abstract: The Antarctic megadune research was conducted during two field seasons, one in November 2002 and the other in December 2003 through January 2004. The megadune field site is located on the East Antarctic Plateau, southeast of Vostok station. The objectives of this multi-facetted research are to determine the physical characteristics of the firn across the dunes including typical climate indicators ... View entire text
