1. Cold Spice: Double Diffusion Generated by Vertical Ice Walls at Erebus Ice Tongue and Drygalski Ice Tongue, Antarctica [K132_2010_2012_NZ_1]
?Ocean spice? refers to one of the great hidden mechanisms driving ocean missing. Large regions of the oceans are layered in such a way that differences in molecular characteristics between heat and ...


2. Land and sea ice sructure west and south of Ross Island measured by ground penetrating radar, UAV, and helicopter EM bird [K053_2009_2012_NZ_1]
This data set decribes surface and volume properties of snow and ice to validate radar satellite measurements. Ground penetrating radar (GPR) at 500 and 1000GHz provides information on snow layers ...


3. Dynamics and change of the Darwin Hatherton Glacial System [K056_2006_2010_NZ_1]   CHILD DIFs
The Darwin-Hatherton glacial system offers a unique opportunity to investigate the response of the Antarctic Ice Sheet to future climate change. As well as draining the East Antarctic Ice Sheet into ...


4. Land and sea ice sructure west and south of Ross Island measured by ground penetrating radar, UAV, and helicopter EM bird [K053_2009_2010_NZ_1]   CHILD DIFs
This data set decribes surface and volume properties of snow and ice to validate radar satellite measurements. Ground penetrating radar (GPR) at 500 and 1000GHz provides information on snow layers ...


5. 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 ...


6. Ground penetrating radar, snow accumulation and snow pit measurements at McMurdo Ice Shelf and in the catchment basin of Erebus glacier [K053_2008_2009_NZ_1]
The knowledge of the cryosphere's mass balance is fundamental to understanding the impacts of climate change. Much of the research into the key components of the cryosphere is based on measurements ...


7. McMurdo Ice Shelf Project: Measurements of ice sheet movement, accumulation and ablation rate, strain/density rates, brine infusion and snow profiles [K001_1962_1984_NZ_1]
Surface elevation and movement of the McMurdo Ice Shelf and Ross Ice Shelf were conducted as part of the McMurdo Ice Shelf Project which was active from the 1962 to 1970 field seasons. A significant ...


8. GPR, electromagnetic and spectral analysis of surface wave surveys on the Pram Point pressure ridges and surrounding area [K054_2001_2002_NZ_1]
Experiments using GPR around Scott Base showed the GPR could detect crevasses on the McMurdo Ice Shelf, in an area near Scott Base where distinctive surface undulations or 'pressure rollers' (pressure ...


9. An ASTER Digital Elevation Model (DEM) for the Darwin-Hatherton Glacial System [K053_2006_2007_NZ_1]
In order to understand how the West Antarctic Ice Sheet may respond to global climate change in the future, its current nature and how it has responded to climate change in the past has been investigated. ...
