Denali National Park, Alaska

Click here to obtain Denali, Alaska ice core data.
In May 2008, samples were collected from a 4.35m deep snow pit and an 18.77m long, 8.2 cm diameter firn core (drilled in the bottom of the pit), approximately 1 km south of Kahiltna Pass (KPass) at 2970m a.s.l, Denali National Park, Alaska. An additional snowpit at the Kahiltna base camp (2195ma.s.l.; 11km south-southeast of KPass) was sampled for chemistry. Hourly AWS data were recorded at the base camp from May 2008 to May 2009. Ground penetrating radar (GPR) raw data were also collected.

Kahiltna Pass Site: 63.07°N, 151.17°W, 2970ma.s.l.
