Record #112863:

Snow-accumulation variability from seasonal surface observations and firn-core stratigraphy, eastern Wilkes Land, Antarctica / Ian D. Goodwin.

Title: Snow-accumulation variability from seasonal surface observations and firn-core stratigraphy, eastern Wilkes Land, Antarctica / Ian D. Goodwin.
Author(s): Goodwin, Ian D.
Date: 1991.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (1991.), Vol. 37(127) (1991)
Abstract: Annual accumulation records were derived from two firn cores drilled along 2000 m contour, separated by 750 km. Records, spanning 1930-85, show that annual accumulation has increased by 25% from 1960 to 1985, resulting in highest rates in 55-year records. Annual accumulation layers were identified in firn cores using firn-stratigraphic model together with seasonal oxygen-isotope ratios. Suggests that increase is result of changes in general atmospheric circulation pattern, which have produced higher annual frequency of precipitation events.
