Group: Summary

   This data set contains sublimation rate data from laboratory studies of snow. 
   Parameters include flow rate, measured sublimation rate, and theoretical 
   maximum sublimation rate. Data were collected in cold rooms at the Cold 
   Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL), in Hanover, NH, during 
   2005 and 2006. The data were collected as part of a collaborative research 
   project. The project aims to develop a quantitative understanding of the 
   processes active in isotopic exchange between snow/firn and water vapor, which 
   is important to Antarctic ice core interpretation.

   Data are available via FTP in Microsoft Excel (.xls) format.
