What is the Cryosphere?
When scientists talk about the cryosphere, they mean the places on Earth where water is in its solid form, frozen into ice or snow. Read more ...
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
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
