Title
WAIS Divide WDC06A Core Quality Versus Depth
Abstract
Qualitative assessment of ice-core quality versus depth for the deep WAIS Divide WDC06A ice core. The depths and core quality ratings presented here are from the field observations made at WAIS Divide, Antarctica, during the course of the drilling of the ice core. Depths are in meters. Core quality ratings were defined are as follows. Excellent: -1 breaks/no fractures; Very Good: -2 breaks/90% no fractures; Good: -3 breaks/50% no fractures; Fair: >10 cm without fractures; Poor: >10 cm without through fractures; Very Poor: <10 cm without through fractures.
