Summary

Abstract:
Sections of ice core acquired from upper 100 m of the ice stream during the RABID project. Ice cores were drilled and retrieved using the hot-water ice-corer. Cores were taken at selected depths in two adjacent holes. Core section length = up to 4 m. Number of core sections = 6. Total length = 20.8 m.

The RABID project employed hot-water drilling techniques, down-hole instrumentation, as well as surface geophysical measurements, to form an integrated programme studying ice dynamics, basal conditions, climate and glacial history.
