GISP2 Insoluble Microparticles, 3600 Years

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: Insoluble microparticle concentrations and grain-size distributions are
measured with an Elzone 280PC particle counter in a Class 100 clean room at the
University of New Hampshire. The Elzone uses a 30 um orifice to measure
microparticle concentrations in 64 logarithimically- divided channels from 0.65
um to 11 um and calculates a grain-size distribution as an equivalent spherical
diameter. Mass ... View entire text
