Master thesis defense by Sebastian Bender

Title: Measurement of air content in the Greenland ice sheet

In this thesis I describe how I have build an apparatus to measure the total gas content in glacier ice. I show the measurement of 10 adjacent samples from a Greenland ice core (Eurocore), estimate the accuracy and compare the result with earlier studies from the literature. 3-4 measurements are in good agreement and 6 measurements gave a higher air content than expected.
