6. Soil, relic ice, permafrost, Hart Ash and granite samples from the Lower Victoria Valley, Beacon Valley, near the Meserve Glacier in Wright Valley, and Kennar Valley to determine the deposition of this ice [K047_2004_2006_NZ_1]
Ancient glacial ice that has stagnated and lies buried underneath rock debris has been found in the Beacon Valley and more recently in several other valleys. This ice poses the possibility of obtaining ...


7. Volcanogenic and sedimentary deposits at Mt Watters [K042_2000_2001_NZ_1]
Volcanogenic and sedimentary deposits that comprise Mt Watters were mapped and sampled at Allan Hills to determine the nature of the feature and the eruptive event which produced it. Collected data ...


8. Greywacke and volcanic rock samples from Robertson Bay area, North Victoria Land, Antarctica [K104_2005_2006_NZ_1]
A collection of 97 individual rock samples from the Robertson Bay area of North Victoria Land (between Cape Scott, Mount Minto, Cape Hallett and Protection Cove) were collected to improve understanding ...


9. Measurements of gases, particulates and energy from the plume, air, rocks, snow, ice, steam, gas and soils of Mt Erebus, Ross Island [K092_1989_1990_NZ_1]
Mt Erebus gases, particulates and energy forms an important source of chemical species in the Antarctic environment and its important that the composition and quantity of the components of the plume ...


10. A reconstruction of the record of volcanic processes within the vent of a large and explosive basaltic eruption in the Mawson Formation in the Allan Hills [K061_2001_2002_NZ_2]
The contact relationship between volcanic deposits and surrounding country rocks of the Beacon Supergroup are steep over a large area. Beyond the landslide deposits along the contact between Beacon ...


11. Geochemistry, paleomagnetism and intrusive history of the Ferrar Dolerites, Antarctica [K061_2004_2007_NZ_1]
A suite of geological samples were collected in the Transanatarctic Mountains for paleomagnetic and geochemical analysis. Combined with field observations, these samples will help determine magma ...


12. Investigation into the Mawson Formation volcanics of southern Allan Hills and comparisons with northern Allan Hills and Carapace Nunatak [K061_2003_2004_NZ_1]
The thick, laterally continuous block-rich volcaniclastic layer of the southern Allan Hills area was examined to determine their source and mode of emplacement. Extensive geological mapping of the ...
