1. Investigation of the weathering processes and quaternary geology in the Wright Valley and the elevated beach ridges of Marble Point and investigation of the dykes at the Nussbaum Riegel [K042_1966_1967_NZ_1]
The weathering processes and quaternary geology was investigated in the Wright Valley, mostly near Lake Vanda but as far east as the Meserve Glacier, the Taylor Valley and at Marble Point. Igneous ...


2. Examination of recent marine deposits and local geology at Cape Barne, Cape Bird and Cape Crozier, Ross Island, Antarctica [K042_1969_1970_NZ_1]
Recent marine deposits were discovered at Cape Barne, Ross Island. A number of well preserved shell layers exposed beside the frozen lakes being Cape Barne, at 30m asl were investigated. Upon examination ...


3. 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 ...


4. Analysis of the coastal geomorphology of Cape Bird - onshore measurements (tides, wave height, current velocities and direction, climatic parameter) and offshore bathymetric surveys [K014_1971_1972_NZ_3]
Measurements were made on the following inputs into the beach system of Cape Bird: the tides, wave height, current velocities and directions, wind conditions and air temperature to examine which daily ...


5. Ground profile surveys and aerial photographs of Priapulus Point to determine the evolution and development of the land feature [K014_1974_1975_NZ_3]
Data on the nature and composition of the depositional beach ridges which make up Priapulus Point at Cape Bird was collected to determine if the development pattern of the ridges reflects changing ...


6. 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 ...


7. 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 ...
