Abstract: A 9 cm diameter Kovacs corer was used to drill holes partially through the ice. The core was removed, creating a pressure head in the hole. Packers made of ABS tubing wrapped with foam to create a tight seal were inserted into the holes to block the horizontal component of flow. A "Levelogger", which is a pressure transducer for monitoring well-water, created by Solinst, was then inserted into ... View entire text

Quality Please see the Permeability worksheet in the Master_Permeability.xls spreadsheet for individual data points marked bad, as well as notes regarding why they were bad. In general, these data points were marked bad for one of three reasons.

The first occurred when the sack hole was drilled too deep. Within the bottom few centimetres of ... View entire text
