Document DetailsAnalytical Solutions for Determining Ice Core Temperatures
|Authors:||Das DK, Jois SS and Kelley JJ|
Analytical solutions have been developed in cylindrical coordinates to predict temperature profiles in ice cores. Three geometric configurations have been investigated: (1) an infinite cylinder; (2) a semi-infinite cylinder, and (3) a finite cylinder. Final solutions have been compactly listed and results generated form them are presented as non-dimensional temperature charts which would be useful to the students currently engaged in the design and development of a thermo-mechanical ice coring device at our university.
