New Methods in Ice Core Processing
Authors: Stauffer B, Burkhalter J and Sigg A
Year: 1988
Periodical/Journal: Ice Core Drilling. Proceedings of the Third International Workshop on Ice Drilling Technology (eds C. Rado and D. Beaudoing)
Page Range: 151-157

Core processing includes the inspection, registration, labeling and packing of ice cores as well as first measurements in the field. The methods of core processing applied during core drillings at Dye 3 and South Pole are presented. A modified version that will be applied in summer 1989 in Central Greenland is discussed in more detail. It includes the cutting and melting of subcores and the measurement of certain impurity concentrations (e.g. H2O2) continuously along the core in the field.
