Sampling glacial erratics along David Glacier
Entry ID: K001D_2017_2018_NZ_1

Abstract: We seek to identify the thinning history of the David Glacier since the last glacial maximum, approximately 20,000 years ago. We will do this by sampling glacial erratics deposited on 5 rocky outcrops along the flanks of David Glacier and analysing them for their exposure history. While all sites contained the precise type of samples we intended on sampling (glacial erratics), the overall amount ... View entire text
