During 1962 data were collected at Wilkes Base, Antarctica and between Wilkes Base and Vostok, 850 miles inland, on snow accumulation rates and sub-surface ice temperatures. These data have been used in conjunction with information on ice thicknesses to calculate theoretical temperature profiles throughout the icecap, and the validity of these calculations examined by comparison with known temperatures. A method of preparation of plastic replicas of snow crystals and drift snow particles was studied, and the knowledge gained utilised to obtain accurate replicas of drift snow particles inland from Wilkes. Particle size frequency distributions of the drift particles were studied using the plastic replicas for measurement purposes.
