Project Description

The Desert Research Institute's (DRI) scope of work builds on McConnell's extensive experience in ice core analysis and snow accumulation research in Greenland and Antarctica. This includes the 220 km long Arctic Circle Traverse (ACT) of the Greenland ice sheet in 2004 which involved developing and linking ice core records and ground penetrating radar surveys similar to those proposed here. As part of the scope, McConnell and his group will analyze ~270 m of ice core and he will assist in the incorporation of the ACT radar and ice core data into the new measurements as necessary.
