Analysis of air and snow samples in Antarctica for isotope analysis
Entry ID: K001_1960_1975_NZ_1

Abstract: Snow samples were collected over a number of seasons for analysis of fission products (deuterium and oxygen isotopes), tritium and sulphur isotope contents. The information would provide the basic data on nuclear products occurring both naturally and as the result of nuclear explosions. Concise methods are used in sampling so that the right density of snow is collected. For fission product ... View entire text
