Slope Movement, Neotoma Valley, Southern Ohio
Everett, K. R. (1963-01)
Fifty-three pits were dug along a transect of Neotoma Valley so as to sample both the southwest-facing and northeast-facing slopes. Each pit was dug to a depth of 59 cm and samples were taken from the 0-, 15-, 30-, and 59- ...
USNC-IGY Antarctic Glaciological Data, Report Number 2: Field Work 1958 Part X: Wilkes Station Glaciology, 1958
Hollin, John T.; Cronk, Caspar; Robertson, Richard (1961-08)
This report contains the major part of the glaciological data collected by the 1958 wintering-over party at Wilkes Station. In several cases the measurements reported here are a continuation of those of 1957, and no attempt ...
Photogrammetric Measurement of Ice Movement for Glaciological Studies of the Byrd Glacier, Antarctic Region
Adler, Ron K. H. (1963-02)
The subject of this research is the measurement of ice movement on the Byrd Glacier in the Antarctic using photogrammetric methods. The work was performed with very limited geodetic control available.
Influence of Clouds and Pollution in the Arctic Region: Some Characteristics of Short- and Long- Wave Radiation at Resolute, Northwest Territories, Canada
Vowinckel, Eberhard (1969-05)
The influence of pollution on short-wave and long-wave radiation was investigated using data from synoptic observations for several years at Resolute (74°4l'N, 94°55'W). The pollution factor in this study is defined as the ...
USNC-IGY Antarctic Glaciological Data, Report No. 2: Field Work 1958-59
Pewe, Troy L. (1960-02)
At least four major Quaternary glaciations, each successively less extensive than the former, are recorded in the McMurdo Sound region of Antarctica. Deposits of the earliest recognized glacial advance occur high on ridges ...
USNC-IGY Antarctic Glaciological Data, Report Number 2: Field Work 1958-59
Anderson, V.H. (1960-09)
Rock specimens from newly-discovered mountain masses and nunataks in Marie Byrd Land, Antarctica, are described. Four chemical analyses of volcanic rocks from Mt. Takahe are presented. The volcanic specimens, identified ...
Glaciological Investigations on Sukkertoppen Ice Cap, Southwest Greenland, Summer 1964
Rundle, Arthur S. (1965-02)
Glaciological studies were made on the Sukkertoppen Ice Cap, southwest Greenland, during August, 1964. Temperatures at depth indicate that much of the ice cap is temperate. Zonation according to Benson's facies concept is ...
A Neutron Probe for the Determination of Snow Density and Its Use in Antarctica
Kane, H. S. (1969-01)
A neutron probe for the determination of snow density was designed and built for operation under field conditions. The probe contains a neutron source which emits fast neutrons. The neutrons lose their energy in the snow ...
Ecological Observations in the Muir Inlet Area, Glacier Bay National Monument, Alaska
Welch, Roy A. (1965-03)
From observations conducted during the summer of 1962 concerning the habitat, species, and general successional stages of the plant and animal life in the area surrounding Muir Inlet (58°54' N. Lat.,136°05' W. Long.), it ...
Land Forms Produced by the Wastage of the Casement Glacier, Southeast Alaska
Price, Robert J. (1964-02)
An area of 15 square miles between the terminus of the Casement Glacier and the shore of Muir Inlet, in the Glacier Bay National Monument, was studied for a period of eleven weeks during the summer of 1962 and revisited ...
