Record #164674:

A mean net accumulation pattern derived from radioactive layers and radar soundings on Austfonna, Nordaustlandet, Svalbard / Jean Francis Pinglot, Jon Ove Hagen, Kjetil Melvold, Trond Eiken, Christian Vincent.

Title: A mean net accumulation pattern derived from radioactive layers and radar soundings on Austfonna, Nordaustlandet, Svalbard / Jean Francis Pinglot, Jon Ove Hagen, Kjetil Melvold, Trond Eiken, Christian Vincent.
Author(s): Pinglot, Jean Francis.
Hagen, Jon Ove.
Melvold, Kjetil.
Eiken, Trond.
Vincent, Christian.
Date: 2001.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (2001.), Vol. 47(159) (2001)
Abstract: Presents snow-accumulation distribution over Austfonna. Describes drilling of 29 shallow ice cores in 1998 and 1999 in the accumulation area and upper ablation area. Describes snow-pit stratigraphy and core sampling and analysis. Identifies both natural and artificial radioactive signatures. Determines mean snow accumulation from the radioactive layers associated with Chernobyl and the atmospheric tests layer. Describes use of ground penetrating radar (GPR) to derive continuous profiles of 1998/99 winter snow cover. Finds correlation with manual probing and core stratigraphy necessary in the accumulation area, where snow cover lies on heterogeneous firn rather than uniform cold ice. Finds large spatial variations in both accumulation rate and mean annual mass balance. Discusses meteorological and topographical influences on accumulation distribution. Observes no trends in accumulation rates.
