Group: Summary

   Snow pit and ice core data from the Newall Glacier (location - 162 30' East, 
   77 35' South) were collected during 1987 and 1988. These include information 
   on chemistry, Beta profiles and stratigraphy. Ice cores were collected during 
   the austral summer of 1988-1989 and contain information on chemistry, Pb- 210 
   profiles, density profiles and temperature profiles. Core A was 175 meters 
   long and core B was 150 meters long.

   The snow pits were dug and sampled by the Glacier Research Group (GRG), using 
   established protocols to prevent contamination. The samples for major ion 
   chemistry remained frozen until melted for analysis in the GRG lab, located at 
   the University of New Hampshire (UNH), and all core processing was done by GRG 
   established protocols to prevent contamination. Major ions were analyzed using 
   suppressed ion chromatography.
