Abstract: Metadata record for data from AAS (ASAC) Project 3064.

10Be and 7Be are naturally-occurring radioactive isotopes produced in the Earth's atmosphere and surface by cosmic rays, at a rate controlled by the activity of the Sun (and other factors). 10Be is long-lived while 7Be 'decays' much more quickly. Using the Air-link we now have an opportunity to return ice core samples containing the ... View entire text

Variations to work plan or objectives:
The Air-Link schedule was seriously delayed and curtailed for 08/09 due to the accident at Davis. Additionally, the Aurora Basin team were unable to make their expedition and instead made an impromptu trip to ... View entire text
