The concentration of combustion engine particulates, the organic fraction of the particulates and the sources of the particulates identified by isotopic analysis from snow and ice samples near Scott Base - K016_1993_1994_NZ_1
Entry ID: K016_1993_1994_NZ_1

Abstract: The McMurdo Dry Valleys contain negligible snow and ice, while being surrounded by other glaciated valleys and snow covered mountains. The mechanisms causing the valleys and maintaining them were not established, prior to this study. The aims of this project were to understand the physical mechanisms leading to the existence of the dry valleys, to compare data against models so that the models can ... View entire text
