Inland from Halley Bay 1970


Notes

Map: Peel, 1976, Figure A.

Station Information: Peel, 1976, p. 7. Date of observation within + or - 1 month of given data.

Temperature and Depth: Peel, 1976, p. 7. Temperature reported in Celsius, depth is in meters. Ten-meter holes were drilled at each station using a heavily lagged mercury-iridium thermometer (+ or -0.1C). Temperature was recorded after the thermometer had been in position overnight. (Peel, 1976, p. 2)

Density: Density reported in g/cm3.

Accumulation: Peel, 1976, p. 7. Discussion on accumulation values can be found in Peel, 1976, p. 6.

* Flag: Represents how temperature was derived. Values reported as (A) represent mean annual temperature from 10 m temperature core measurement.

**Average Density for 0-2 m. Peel, 1976, Figure 2.
