Instruments and Methods: Diamond wire-saw cutting technique for investigating textures and fabrics of debris-laden ice and brittle ice

  • J.-L. Tison (a1)

Abstract

This paper presents an original method for sampling special ice types like debris-rich ice or brittle ice that cannot be prepared using the standard band-saw/microtome procedure. The general working principles of the diamond wire-sawing technique are explained, and special adaptations for ice-cutting, thick-sectioning and thin-sectioning are discussed.
