Geophysical and geochemical investigations of massive ground ice
Principal Investigator: Moorman, Brian J
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993
Summary: The researchers will conduct 2 types of surveys: (1) radar surveys will be conducted using a portable radar unit; and (2) small samples of ice from glaciers and moraines will be collected in order to conduct analysis which will determine the chemical make-up of the ice. This information will be used to determine characteristics about the glaciers as well as help in our understanding of the climat...
