Abstract: We consider a question of describing the one-dimensional P-adic representations that lift a given representation over a finite field of the absolute Galois group of a function field K. In this case, the characterization of abelian p-power extensions of fields of characteristic p can be extended and refined to allow only restricted ramification at the places of K, and can be a tool for analyzing one-dimensional P-adic representations. We then turn to the problem of classifying those representations which can be realized as the action of the Galois group on the division points of a rank one Drinfeld module, discussing both results and a conjecture about form of the representations that arise in this manner.
