Glacial-interglacial History of West Antarctic Nunataks and Site Reconnaissance for Subglacial Bedrock Sampling
Entry ID: NSF-ANT11-42162

Abstract: This award supports a reconnaissance geological and radar-sounding study of promising sites in West Antarctica for a future project to measure cosmogenic nuclides in subglacial bedrock. Field work will take place in the Whitmore Mountains, close to the WAIS divide, and on the Nash and Pirrit Hills, downflow from the divide in the Weddell Sea drainage. At each site geological indicators of higher ... View entire text
