Paper # 1 discusses the genesis of unconformable stratigraphy in East Antarctica, as initiated by accumulation hiatuses on leeward slopes. The paper also discusses the control of icebed topography on the process and the extensive recrystallization that occurs in firn.


2. Arcone, S. A., R. Jacobel, and G.S. Hamilton, 2012, Unconformable stratigraphy in East Antarctica: Part II. Englacial cosets and recrystallized layers, J. Glaciol., 58(208), 253-264, doi: 10.1389/2012JoG11J045.

Paper # 2 shows the subsequent expression of this stratigraphy within the englacial body of the East Antarctic Ice Sheet.

Paper # 3 shows the unexpected strength of Maxwell Wagner relaxation in simple mineral and one complex soil at low water contents.

Paper # 4 experimentally and numerically tests the predicted attenuation rates of interfacial Sommerfeld type ground waves.

Paper # 5 discusses the exceptional penetration and resolution of lacustrine subbottom stratigraphy achieved with GPR in a New Hampshire lake.


6. Arcone, S. A., and Kreutz, K., 2009, GPR reflection profiles of Clark and Commonwealth Glaciers in the Dry Valleys, Antarctica, Ann. Glaciol., 50, 121–129.

Paper # 6 discusses icebed profiles of three glaciers in the Dry Valleys of Antarctica, and possible causes for the limited depth of the profiled stratigraphy.
