Snow Stratigraphic Investigations at Dome C, East Antarctica
Palais, Julie M. (1984)
Current interest in studies of past climatic changes as revealed in long ice cores has stressed a need for understanding the development of the record preserved in these cores. This study investigates whether the record ...

Goldthwait, Richard P. (1988)
Summary and Analyses of Surface Mass Balance Compilations for Antarctica, 1960-1985
Giovinetto, Mario B.; Bull, Colin (1987)
An analytical review is given of twenty-four compilations of surface mass balance for Antarctica produced between 1960 and 1985, with emphasis on their chronological development and the growth of the point-specific data ...
Lower and Middle Paleozoic Geology of Southern Ohio
Rytel, Jenny; Bergstrom, Stig M. (1985-08)
This guidebook was produced for a field trip for the participants of the Sixth Gondwana Symposium held at the Ohio State University on August 19-23, 1985. The purpose of the field trip is to provide an overview of Upper ...
Observed Processes of Glacial Deposition in Glacier Bay, Alaska
The need for a Glacier Bay field trip for glacial geologists was recognized more than a decade ago; however, logistics presented serious problems, particularly with respect to transportation and accommodation. The option ...
911 Years of Microparticle Deposition at the South Pole: A Climatic Interpretation
Mosley-Thompson, Ellen (1980)
A detailed analysis of the particles within a 101-meter firn core from Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station Antarctica, was conducted. 6218 samples were analyzed for particle concentration and size distribution. Individual ...
Techniques and Analyses for Conductivity Measurements in Antarctica
Ewing, Richard E.; Falk, Richard S.; Bolzan, John F.; Whillans, Ian M. (1981)
An accurate knowledge of the thermal properties of firn and ice within a glacier is essential for any reliable mathematical model of heat transfer. This paper considers the problem of determining the thermal properties ...
Meteorite Concentration by Ice Flow
Heeswijk, Marijke van (1984)
Ice flow concentrates meteorites and supplies old ice at the ablation surface near the Allan Hills , Antarctica. A model for these phenomena is proposed by Whillans and Cassidy (1983), and is developed in this paper. The ...
Glacial Movements in Greenland from Doppler Satellite Observations
Drew, Alice Jean Remington (1983)
Seven Magnavox MX1502 satellite receivers were used during the summers of 1980 and 1981 to obtain the movement of 22 stations at three locations on the ice sheet of interior Greenland. The research program was successful ...
