The albedo and ice transmissity at a cold based glacier, Wright Lower Glacier, Wright Valley, Antarctica
Entry ID: K064_2004_2007_NZ_7

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The albedo of the Wright Lower Glacier was monitored over two seasons (05-06 and 06-07) to help determine the seasonal melt regime of the glacier by using data from a climate station and manual measurements with a pyranometer. The albedo was measured along a cross section below the north facing cliff, in the channels, on the south facing slope, over a cryoconite hole and over wet sand and dry ... View entire text
