    Summary

  • Observations of surface snow accumulation on the East Antarctic ice sheet were conducted as part of a monitoring program for assessing the surface mass balance of the ice sheet. During traverse surveys between the coastal S16 point and the inland Dome Fuji region, surface snow accumulation has been measured since 1992 by Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition (JARE) members. Surface snow samplings were conducted every 10km along the traverse route.
