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. 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 ...


4. Investigations of the glacial and periglacial geology of the Miers and Taylor Valley [K042_1964_1965_NZ_3]
The glacial and periglacial geology of the Miers and Taylor Valley was investigated. Special interests of the Miers and Taylor Valleys lie in their ice covered lakes and in the prolematic benches ...


5. Investigations of the moraines and raised marine deposits and fossils at Black Island and Brown Peninsula, McMurdo Sound [K042_1964_1965_NZ_1]
In the 1963-64 field season, a helicopter reconnaissance was conducted at White Island, Black Island and Brown Peninsula. The reconnaissance showed that there was scope for a comprehensive survey ...


6. Soil, relic ice, permafrost, Hart Ash and granite samples from the Lower Victoria Valley, Beacon Valley, near the Meserve Glacier in Wright Valley, and Kennar Valley to determine the deposition of this ice [K047_2004_2006_NZ_1]
Ancient glacial ice that has stagnated and lies buried underneath rock debris has been found in the Beacon Valley and more recently in several other valleys. This ice poses the possibility of obtaining ...


7. Influence of the lithological and geotechnical properties of rocks upon morphology of glacial valleys [K009_1984_1985_NZ_1]
The long and cross sectional forms of glacial valleys and cirques are a reflection of relationship between the abrasive and plucking processes occuring at the base of a glacier and the resistance ...


8. Micromorphology analysis of sediment samples from the Taylor Glacier snout to determine information on the microstructures and the process of formation of a moraine linear ridge [K042_1999_2000_NZ_2]
Three spatially variable micromorphology samples were taken from a discontinuous moraine linear ridge at the Taylor glacier snout to provide unknown information on the microstructures of this deposition ...
