Abstract: A 4m snow pit from the Evans Piedmont glacier, Victoria Dry Valleys was sampled using ultra-clean methodology at 1cm resolution and was used to provide a comparison of trace element seasonal fluctuations between the Evans Piedmont glacier and Whitehall glacier. The snow profile provides an approximately 13+ year record of snow accumulation. Transfer functions between meteorological data ... View entire text
