Coordinated Deployments:

Snowpits were dug at selected locations along the ice survey lines. Vertical profiles of snow temperature, density, grain size, and grain type were measured. Ice and slush layers were also noted. Results from the 22 snowpits examined in 2001 and the 16 snowpits examined in 2002 are summarized.
