Welcome to CASA Website!

Photo by Andrei Kurbatov This part of CASA web site is design to help project members have convenient access to data sets. Please be careful with sharing this information with other groups. Probably the best mechanism is to ask all involved investigators directly if you need to share unpublished information.


Please send email to Andrei if you would like to add more data or have some ideas on papers or data interpretations. We will try to keep all information updated as soon as I have it

Summary of the Results

Results of 2007-2008

“The goal for the last year was to process collected deep core and interpret collected field data so we have better ideas about depth and ice flow conditions.”

  • First sampling was conducted at the Detroit Plateau in February 2007
  • In November- December 2007, deep ice core site was selected and two 130 and 20 meters ice cores were recovered
  • Snow pit chemistry data available
  • Spring Meeting in Orono ME
  • Three meters from the deep part of the core were melted
  • June 2008, CCI submitted proposal to NSF for Detroit Plateau analytical work
  • Summer 2008 collaborative proposal was submitted to INACH
  • September 2008 tephra work for fingerprinting was done on microprobe
  • In October 2008 depth to bedrock was estimated
  • In November- December 2008 new insight on accumulation rate were obtained from ground measurements

Future plans:

  1. Process 130 meters core
  2. Submit CASA proposal.
  3. Prepare deep drilling expedition in November-December, 2009.
