Geophysical and oceanographic investigations were conducted in the Ross Sea during a McMurdo Sound to McMurdo Sound charter aboard the MV Benjamin Bowring. The main geophysical program was designed ...


6. Gravity and seismic data in the Windless Bight area, Ross Island and the Dailey Islands to determine possible lithospheric deformation due to the loading by young Ross Island volcanics [K101_1982_1986_NZ_1]
Where loading of the lithosphere by young volcanic piles has occurred, the lithosphere is found to be displaced downward beneath the load and at distances of about 200-300 km from the centre of the ...


7. Measurement of the earth's total magnetic field ahd seismic profile measurements between New Zealand and McMurdo Sound [K004_1963_1964_NZ_1]
Measurements of the earth's total magnetic field was conducted on board the HMNZS Endeavour from New Zealand to McMurdo Sound. Measurements were made with a proton magnetometer designed and trialled ...


8. Seismic reflection data from a 50km line southeast of the summit of Mt Erebus to assess the amplitude and wavelength of crustal flexure associated with the load of the Ross Archipelago [K101_1988_1989_NZ_1]
A joint project between the New Zealand Geophysic Division (now IGNS), Stanford University and the University of Nebraska was conducted to carry out a seismic reflection line of approximate 50 km ...


9. Seismic reflection survey across Hut Point Peninsula to determine the sedimentary sequence under the peninsula to define Cenozoic glacial and volcanic history of the region [K101_1992_1993_NZ_1]
A seismic reflection survey and wide angle reflection experiment was carried out along an 11km profile, starting approximately 8 km east of Hut Point Peninsula and heading west to delineate the sedimentary ...


10. Seismic refraction and reflection measurements of the east-west Antarctic plate boundary near the Lowery Glacier and onto the Ross Ice Shelf, south Victoria Land [K101_1990_1991_NZ_1]
In the 1990-1991 season, a seismic refraction and reflection experiment was completed along a 142 km long line across the transition zone between Ross Embayment and the Transantarctic Mountains, just ...


11. Seismic, gravity, radar and magnetic measurements across the East Antarctic ice sheet from the Transantarctic Mountains to the Wilkes sub-glacial basin [K101_1993_1994_NZ_1]
A geophysical traverse, designed to image the sedimentary layer under the 3 km thick East Antarctic ice sheet, was completed across part of East Antarctic ice cap west of McMurdo Sound. The programme ...


12. Velocity logging of the CIROS-1 drillhole and determination of the geological structure in the immediate vicinity of the CIROS-1 drillhole using seismic reflection techniques (marine airgun sound source) [K042_1986_1987_NZ_1]
Measurement of the downhole velocity of the CIROS-1 drillhole after the completion of drilling by lowering a hydrophone down the drillhole was unsuccessful due to equipment failure. Determination ...
