Microparticle/Tephra Analysis of the WAIS Divide Ice Core
Entry ID: USAP-0636740

Abstract: This award supports a project to perform continuous microparticle concentration and size distribution measurements (using coulter counter and state-of-the-art laser detector methods), analysis of biologically relevant trace elements associated with microparticles (Fe, Zn, Co, Cd, Cu), and tephra measurements on the WAIS Divide ice core. This initial three-year project includes analysis of ice core ... View entire text
