Abstract: The physical properties of Antarctic fast ice were investigated throughout a full year of growth. The aim of the project was three fold; 1) to document the basic physical properties of Antarctic fast ice (salinity, temperature, crystal structure, brine volume, sub ice platelet thickness, ice thickness and snow cover depth and density) and their variations throughout the growth season, 2) to ...
