Record #35616:

Accumulation and temperature on the inland ice of North Greenland, 1959 / Chester C. Langway, Jr.

Title: Accumulation and temperature on the inland ice of North Greenland, 1959 / Chester C. Langway, Jr.
Author(s): Langway, Chester C.,
Date: 1961.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (1961.), Vol. 3(30) (1961)
Abstract: 12 pits, 5 to 5.5 m deep, revealed between 6 and 13 years of snow accumulation. Results show average net accumulation of 18.5 g cm² a⁻¹. Accumulation decreases inland at mean rate of 1.5 g cm² for every 100 m rise in elevation. Temperature measurements at 10 m in all pits give mean temperature--altitude gradient of 0.77°C for every 100 m. Evidence of melt was found in all pits, especially for 1954. Mean density reflects local climate.
