dc.description.abstractThe Pole station (IGY Amundsen-Scott Station) is located within 1 km of the geographical South Pole, 2800 m. above sea level where the ice is approximately 2400 m. thick. Glaciological observations were made from 5 January to 26 November 1958. The main effort was directed toward obtaining information on the area’s present and past snow accumulation, on the physical characteristics of this snow, and on the relationship of the accumulation to meteorological conditions. This report presents the pit stratigraphy and stake measurement data collected for studies of snow accumulation and observations on firn temperatures.en_US
