Abstract:

WE PROPOSE TO MEASURE ICE THICKNESS FROM A SUBMERGED SUBMARINE BY MEASURING THE ATTENUATION OF THE COSMIC RAY PRODUCED NETURON FLUX. A SIMILAR TECHNIQUE HAS BEEN USED SUCCESSFULLY TO MEASURE SNOW THICKNESS. TWO NEUTRON DECTORS, POSSIBLE BF3, WOULD OPERATE IN COINCIDENCE MODES TO REDUCE BACKGROUND CONTRIBUTIONS. THE DETECTION GEOMETRY WOULD DETERMINE THE APERTURE AND, THEREFORE, SIZE OF ICE AREA MEASURED. LABORATORY EXPERIMENTS USING BLOCK ICE WOULD EXAMINE THE FEASIBILITY AND ACCURACY OF ICE MEASUREMENTS. WE WOULD STUDY THE SCALING OF THIS TECHNIQUE TO OPERATIONAL MISSION REQUIREMENTS.
