Impurities trapped in ice sheets and glaciers have the potential to provide detailed, high temporal resolution proxy information on paleo-environments, atmospheric circulation, and environmental pollution through the use of chemical, isotopic, and elemental tracers. We present a novel approach to ice-core chemical analyses in which an ice-core melter is(More)
The Holocene portion of the Siple Dome (Antarctica) ice core was dated by interpreting the electrical, visual and chemical properties of the core. The data were interpreted manually and with a computer algorithm.The algorithm interpretation was adjusted to be consistent with atmospheric methane stratigraphic ties to the GISP2 (Greenland Ice Sheet Project 2)(More)
Researchers at the Desert Research Institute are conducting research aimed at developing and calibrating both operational and physically based numerical models that can be used to predict the quantity and timing of runoff in semi-arid regions where the majority of runoff originates in the seasonal snow pack. Unfortunately, observations of hydrologic(More)
