Collaborative Research: East Antarctic outlet glacier contributions to the Ross Sea from chronology of detrital grains - NSF-ANT10-43572
Entry ID: NSF-ANT10-43572

Abstract: The PIs proposed a provenance study of glacial deposits in the Ross Embayment that will provide a broad scale geochronologic survey of detrital minerals in till to help characterize bedrock beneath the East Antarctic ice sheet and constrain Antarctica's glacial history. This project capitalizes on previous investments in field sampling. Analytical tools applied to single mineral grains extracted ... View entire text
