Record #119973:

The origin of green icebergs in Antarctica / J. Kipfstuhl, G. Dieckmann, Hans Oerter, Hartmut H. Hellmer, W. Graf.

Title: The origin of green icebergs in Antarctica / J. Kipfstuhl, G. Dieckmann, Hans Oerter, Hartmut H. Hellmer, W. Graf.
Author(s): Kipfstuhl, J.
Dieckmann, G.
Oerter, Hans.
Hellmer, Hartmut H.
Graf, W.
Date: 1992.
In: Journal of Geophysical Research. (1992.), Vol. 97(C12) (1992)
Abstract: Comparison of samples from translucent green iceberg with core from Ronne Ice Shelf revealed excellent agreement in isotopic composition, crystal structure and incorporated sediment particles. Concludes that green icebergs are derived from ice shelves with basal layer of marine shelf ice and are not distinguishable from other icebergs until they have capsized. Iceberg and drift-buoy trajectories suggest that green icebergs observed in Weddell Sea originate from Amery Ice Shelf rather than from Ronne Ice Shelf, although latter is also potential source.
