Snow and Firn Temperature and Permeability Measurements from Siple Dome, AntarcticaEntry ID: NSIDC-0100_1
Abstract: This data set includes measurements of snow and firn temperature and permeability collected between November 1998 and June 1999 at Siple Dome. The physical characteristics of snow determine the nature of air-snow exchange processes, which in turn affect chemical records in ice cores. Thus a better understanding of the physical properties of snow will improve interpretation of ice core records of atmospheric composition. Data are available via ftp in both ASCII and Excel formats.
