1. Temperature, salinity and current turbulence along an east to west transect across McMurdo Sound [K131_2007_2013_NZ_1]
The oceanography of McMurdo Sound was investigated by collecting current meter data, water samples, ice cores, under ice turbulence and Conductivity (salinity)-Temperature-Depth (CTD) profiles of ...


2. Temperature, salinity and current turbulence along an east to west transect across McMurdo Sound [K131_2007_2010_NZ_1]
The oceanography of McMurdo Sound was investigated by collecting current meter data, water samples, ice cores, under ice turbulence and Conductivity (salinity)-Temperature-Depth (CTD) profiles of ...


3. Measurements of high amplitude/low cycle fatigue of sea ice in conjunction with the characteristic length of sea ice, temperature and salinity profiles and acoustic emissions [K131_1989_1998_NZ_1]
The high amplitude/low cycle fatigue properties of sea ice in situ at high strain were investigated by developing a cantilever system of sea ice beams and using hydraulic equipment to exercise these ...


4. Measurements of sea ice physical properties and ice strain and wave pattern generated by a load moving over sea ice near Tent Island, McMurdo Sound [K131_1985_1986_NZ_1]
An experiment designed to study, in detail, the wave pattern generated by a load moving over sea ice was conducted on a flat area of snow free, shore fast sea ice about 2km west of Tent Island in ...


5. Experiments to determine the extent to which the behaviour of individual faults alters the properties of the sea ice sheet as a whole [K131_1998_2001_NZ_1]
Sea ice beams were cut using a technique already developed to stress sea ice to fracture. Twenty two beams were cut in total. Mechanical measurements and characterisation of the resulting cracks was ...


6. Strain meter measurements of sea ice under the influence of a moving load from the sea ice runway near McMurdo Station [K131_1983_1985_NZ_1]
Using a strain meter, with a 500 mm gauge length, the influence of a moving load on the strain produced in sea ice was measured firstly by driving a vehicle (ford pickup) on the sea ice runway near ...
