1. Examination of permafrost properties from soil samples and core samples from a range of disturbed soil surfaces sites at Marble Point and Scott Base/McMurdo Station [K150_1989_1990_NZ_1]
The properties of the permafrost immediately beneath the soil was investigated in a range of surfaces disturbed by earlier construction activities such as compacted fill, cut, embankment, retreated ...


2. Analysis of soils from Marble Point contaminated with heavy metals [K150_1989_1990_NZ_2]
The fate of pollutants in Antarctic soils - to what extent soluble and insoluble materials move through, out of, or become fixed in soils, was investigated. Soil samples from a number of sites at ...


3. Assessment of the rate of contaminant movement through Antarctic soils using a lithium chloride experiment at Lake Vanda [K150_1993_1994_NZ_4]
A leaching trial was set up at Lake Vanda to determine how rapidly and how far water-soluble materials spilt on the soil surface will move. A series of 1 x 1 m plots and control sites on the north ...


4. Examination of permafrost characteristic at Marble Point: Moisture content over a range of ground types [K150_1991_1992_NZ_1]
The characterisation of permafrost at Marble Point and Scott Base was conducted over a large area and beyond the vicinity of the runway. At Marble Point, permafrost drilling was carried out on undisturbed ...


5. Gravimetric water contents of soils and permafrost from sites near Lake Vanda in the Wright Valley and at Beacon Heights in the upper Taylor Valley [K150_1993_1994_NZ_2]
The water content of soils and permafrost from localities with a climate contrasting to that of Scott Base were measured from sites near Lake Vanda in the Wright Valley and at Beacon Heights in the ...


6. Measurements of environmental damage to soils caused by foot trampling [K150_1993_1994_NZ_3]
At three sites (1 at Scott Base and 2 near Vanda Station) investigations were carried out to determine the susceptibility of the ground surface to damage from foot traffic (soil trafficability). At ...


7. Measurements of soil water content in the unfrozen soils and the active zone at Marble Point [K150_1991_1992_NZ_2]
The water content in the unfrozen soils and the active zone was compared at different times of the year (January 1990 with November 1991) to determine the extent or significance of soil water changes. ...


8. Measurements of water loss from permafrost (soil ice/moisture content) in an experimentally disturbed and undisturbed permafrost area near Scott Base [K150_1993_1994_NZ_1]
Water content measurements were made continuously from 15 bore holes at an experimentally disturbed and undisturbed site at Scott Base to measure the amount of water loss from permafrost, to compare ...


9. Seasonal soil temperature and moisture data from a site in Marble Point [K150_1991_1992_NZ_3]
Seasonal behaviour of soil water content cannot be determined from short term periodic site observations but instead by continuous monitoring. In order to attempt to look at this question, a datalogger ...


10. Short term climate measurements and permafrost and soil moisture content of coastal mountain zones: Coombs Hills, Convoy Range and Asgard Range [K150_1994_1995_NZ_1]
Permafrost and soil moisture properties were measured at 15 sites in the Coombs Hills and Northwind Glacier and from 2 additional sites in the Asgard Range and the lower Barwick Valley to determine ...


11. Soil properties (i.e. degree of soil weathering, nutrient contents, etc) in the Walcott Bay/Brown Peninsula area [K150_1987_1988_NZ_2]
The properties of the soils in the Walcott Bay/Brown Peninsula area was investigated (i.e. degree of soil weathering, nutrient contents, etc) to help determine if this is a source area for materials ...


12. Soil temperature and moisture levels from Alatna and Towle Valley in the Convoy Range, near Arena Valley and the Walcott Bay area [K150_1987_1988_NZ_3]
Information about soil temperature and soil moisture levels from as many other locations as possible were collected to help establish the definition and classification of cold aridisols. Measurements ...


13. The assessment of the persistence of human impacts (field party disturbances) in the Asgard Range, Barwick Valley (both sites disturbed 30 years prior) and at Marble Point (disturbed up to 5 years prior) [K150_1994_1995_NZ_2]
The assessment of the persistence of human impacts was made by examining sites that had been disturbed by field parties up to thirty years previous in the Asgard Range (6 sites) and Barwick Valley ...
