Gorham, Eville (2011)

In a recent paper on gas enclosures in a temperate glacier (Storbreen in the Jotunheim district of Norway) COACHMAN, HEMMINGSEN and SCHOLANDER (Tellus, 1956) report some specific conductivity and pH measurements made on melted samples as chemical tests of ice purity (conductivity giving some indication of the amount of dissolved ions).DOI: 10.1111/j.2153-3490.1958.tb02038.x
