Establishing the Chronology and Histories of Accumulation and Ice Dynamics for the WAIS Divide Core
Entry ID: USAP-0944197_1

Abstract: This award supports a project to help to establish the depth-age chronology and the histories of accumulation and ice dynamics for the WAIS Divide ice core. The depth-age relationship and the histories of accumulation and ice dynamics are coupled. An accurate age scale is needed to infer histories of accumulation rate and ice-thickness change using ice-flow models. In turn, the accumulation-rate ... View entire text
