1. The Glaciological Basis of Palaeoclimatic Reconstructions of Ice-Shelf Moraines [K064_2010_2013_NZ_1]
The research is giving us an understanding of the entrainment, transfer and deposition of sediment by ice shelves. The investigation of the structure, composition and motion of the Southern McMurdo ...


2. The Glaciological Basis of Palaeoclimatic Reconstructions of Ice-Shelf Moraines [K064_2010_2012_NZ_1]
The research is giving us an understanding of the entrainment, transfer and deposition of sediment by ice shelves. The investigation of the structure, composition and motion of the Southern McMurdo ...


3. Timelapse camera, ice-penetrating radar and GPS data from Beardmore Glacier grounding line. [K001BI_2010_2011_NZ_1]   PARENT DIF
Timelapse camera, ice-penetrating radar and GPS data collected at the grounding zone of Beardmore Glacier, Transantarctic Mountains, Dec 2010. Two time-lapse cameras were deployed on the summit of ...


4. GPR surveys, meteorological and hydrology data from the Joyce, Garwood and Hobbs glaciers in the McMurdo Dry Valleys to investigate glacier-permafrost interactions [K064_2008_2010_NZ_1]
The aim of this study was to develop an understanding of the interactions between glaciers and their permafrost beds that will permit models of glaciers to realistically parameterise ice motion. Improvement ...


5. Ground penetrating radar survey of the Darwin and Hatherton glacial systems [K056_2006_2007_NZ_3]
More than 300 km of ground penetrating radar (GPR) data were collected on the glaciers around Roadend Nunatak, Lake Wellman and Lake Wilson. Reflections from the bedrock were observed on most profiles, ...


6. The depth, motion and mass balance of the McMurdo Ice Shelf, Antarctica [K053_2003_2005_NZ_1]
An examination of the McMurdo Ice Shelf processes was carried out over two field seasons, 2003-2005. Measurements of surface ice motion and mass balance were made by placing stakes across the McMurdo ...


7. Surveys and detailed investigations of Holocene raised beaches on the Victoria Land coast from Spike Cape to Depot Island [K052_1984_1985_NZ_2]
The Holocene raised beaches along the Victoria Land coast from Spike Cape north to Depot Island were investigated. Raised beach ridge suites contain records of relative sea level change that can ...


8. The structure and origin of the Strand Moraines, McMurdo Sound [K042_1983_1984_NZ_1]
Geological work on the Strand Moraines, an area believed to be partly grounded ice cored moraine, that may be a relic of the Last Glaciation 20,000-50,000 years ago, was conducted. A study to account ...


9. Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) surveys of a an ice rise on the southern McMurdo Ice Shelf, Antarctica. [K065_2004_2005_NZ]
A topographic rise was observed on satellite imagery and ground traverses of the southern McMurdo Ice Shelf, part way between the SW tip of Black Island and the north shore of Minna Bluff was investigated ...


10. Using rock and sediment samples from raised beach ridges and glacier moraines for dating to determine the extent of the ice sheet during the last glacial maximum [K043_1996_1998_NZ_2]
Raised beaches on the coast of McMurdo Sound have developed since the last glacial maximum approximately 20,000 year ago when the ice sheets were at their greatest extent. The weight of the overlying ...


11. Baseline information on both the modern processes operating on Antarctic beaches and the development of beach ridges in relation to the last glaciation ice retreat and isostatic rebound [K043_1996_1998_NZ_1]
Beaches in McMurdo Sound have developed since the last glaciation when ice sheets were at their maximum. The weight of the overlying ice, depressed the land, which has slowly rebounded forming a series ...
