1. Measurements of the fixation of nitrogen by auroras and the chemical composition of snow at the south pole [K042_1963_1964_NZ_2]
Two scientists went to the South Pole Station to investigated the chemical composition of the polar snow. Measurements were made of the chemical constituents to determine how much nitrogen is fixed ...


2. A survey of suitable sites in the Wright Valley for boreholes and a study of Lake Vanda sediments [K009_1971_1972_NZ_2]   PARENT DIF
Two weeks were spent in the Wright Valley to survey suitable sites for boreholes to be put down as part of the International Drilling Programme. It was proposed to core the entire thickness of bottom ...


3. Bathymetric surveys, the geomorphology, glacial chronology, halite investigations, thermokarst formations, overland flow and stream bifurcations of Lake Bonney area [K009_1973_1974_NZ_1]   PARENT DIF
35 holes were drilled through the ice in the smaller western lobe of Lake Bonney and the bathymetry of the lake was determined. A further 52 holes were used for the eastern lobe bathymetry. Sediment ...


4. Determining the geochronology of the Taylor Valley from the study of the geomorphology, lake levels, sediments and climatic events during the past 400,000 years [K009_1974_1975_NZ_2]   PARENT DIF
Fieldwork was carried out in the Taylor Valley over several seasons to determine the geochronology of the area.The lake beds and the geomorphology of a series of hummocks between the Suess and LaCroix ...


5. Examination of the chemistry, physics and sedimentology of Lake Wilson, Waikato Valley, Brown Hills Region [K009_1974_1975_NZ_1]   PARENT DIF
Lake Wilson was examined to see if it contained permanent water. The thickness of the ice was described. 36 holes were drilled and the bathymetry was mapped. Surface sediment samples were collected ...


6. Richter footslope development in the Olympus Range [K009_1973_1974_NZ_2]   PARENT DIF
In the 1973-74 season, two detailed traverses were made on Mt Circe and Mt Boreas in the Olympus Range. Bedrock slopes are easily accesible in this region and it is one of the few areas where the ...


7. Soil salt concentrations as indicators of prior lake levels: Lakes Bonney and Vanda [K009_1973_1974_NZ_3]   PARENT DIF
In the belief that geochemical techniques may assist to unravel the complexities of the Antarctic glacial moraine, a project was undertaken to investigate the concentrations of salts in the soils ...


8. Temperature and salinity profiles of the lakes in the Ross Sea Region [K009_1969_1970_NZ_2]   PARENT DIF
Temperature and salinity profiles and general characteristics of Deep Lake and Lake Bonney were investigated.


9. The geochemistry of Antarctic snow, Vostok Station [K009_1977_1978_NZ_1]
Thin layers of snow (as thin as a fraction of a millimetre) were taken and analysed for sodium in a flame photometer. When thin layers of snow are analysed for sodium an annual pattern is found with ...


10. Geochemistry investigations of landforms in the Ross Sea Region to determine past glacial history and landform processes [K009_1969_1970_NZ_1]   PARENT DIF
The geochemistry of Ross Island (Cape Barne and Cape Crozier), the Taylor and Wright Valleys, Lake Vida in Victoria Valley and Marble Point was studied (weathering and land formation) to determine ...


11. Investigation of Antarctic lakes and lake sediments in the Ross Sea Region [K009_1969_1990_NZ_1]   CHILD DIFs
The study of Antarctic lakes and lake sediments in the Ross Sea Region, particularly in the McMurdo Dry Valleys, with particular emphasis on the climatic history was a continuing program of the Waikato ...
