Abstract
    Development of a box diffusion model combined with the boundary layer concept leads to a possibility of determining freezing rates from the isotopic composition of the ice. The model is tested experimentally and first field results are given. Implications for Antarctic glaciology are outlined : determination of sea ice growth rate, of accretion rate at the base of ice shelves and of basal ice rate of formation.
