Abstract:

This paper describes a program of studies on impurities found in the polar snows, centering primarily on the Antarctic. The program was conducted along two avenues spectrometric analysis of the atomic absorption of the elements, sodium, magnesium, calcium, potassium, manganese, and iron and neutron actuation analysis of the elements, chlorine, sodium, and manganese. In order to obtain the largest possible quantity of data, these two studies were run in very close collaboration and both bear on the analysis of the same samples. Theis paper includes discussion of activation analysis procedures.
