Supplement to: Stauffer, Bernhard (1981): Die Zusammensetzung der Luft in natürlichem Eis. Zeitschrift für Gletscherkunde und Glazialgeologie, 17(1), 57-78, hdl:10013/epic.40237.d001
The air trapped in freshly formed ice gives information concerning the ice formation processes as weH as concerning severa,l environmental parameters at the time of ice formation. Air arnount, air composition, and the size and form of bubbles may change with time. Possible processes responsible for such changes are discussed.
In very cold ice air content and air composition remain almost unchanged. Samples of ancient atmospheric air are therefore very weH preserved in cold ice. In temperate ice changes of the air amount and air composition depend on the intergranular water fiow through the glacier. This waterfiow can be estimated by measuring air amount and air composition in ice sampIes.
