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. Oceanography and sedimentation beneath the McMurdo/Ross Ice Shelf in Windless Bight [K042_2002_2003_NZ_1]
Water flow and sedimentation beneath the McMurdo Ice Shelf south of Ross Island was investigated by using a hot water drilling system to melt access holes through the ice shelf allowing measurements ...


4. Temperature, salinity and current turbulence along an east to west transect across McMurdo Sound [K131_2007_2009_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 ...


5. Measurements of the tide level, current, temperature and salinity of McMurdo Sound and examination of the biological biomass in the water column [K007_1970_1974_NZ_1]
A measurement of the tides and currents in McMurdo Sound was conducted over several seasons. Current measurements were first made in McMurdo Sound by Hodgson (1907) during the stay of the Discovery ...


6. CTD casts off Pram Point to determine the internal wave structure under the shore fast ice of McMurdo Sound [K053_1993_1994_NZ_4]
The internal wave structure under the shore fast ice of McMurdo Sound was surveyed. An internal wave is a wave propagating along a density stratification in the water mass. The discontinuity in density ...


7. Zooplankton samples, light levels and water temperature from 0 to 200 m in McMurdo Sound to determine diurnal vertical migration of plankton during the summer months [K014_1971_1972_NZ_4]
Diurnal vertical migration of zooplankton is mainly influenced by light levels in temperate areas. In polar regions, light is continuous during the summer months. This study investigated whether diurnal ...


8. A feasibility study of marine investigations at Cape Bird: Plankton sampling, water temperature, conductivity and chlorophyll content [K014_1969_1970_NZ_1]
On arrival at Cape Bird it was found that the pack ice had broken early and sampling had to be limited to inshore waters from ice piers with water depths never greater than about 20 feet. Plankton ...


9. Food chain investigations at White Island: seal survey, seasonal trends in phytoplankton populations, ocean environmental factors, zooplankton biomass and fish diet, age and growth studies [K014_1976_1977_NZ_1]
A population of Weddell Seals at White Island (some 20km from the edge of the Ross Ice Shelf) was/is thought to be a sub-population that does not migrate to the pack ice in the non-breeding season ...


10. Pelagic ecosystem investigations of McMurdo Sound: plankton species composition and density, ocean environmental factors, levels of seston, bacteria analysis and ice algae composition [K014_1979_1980_NZ_1]
Comparisons of water column productivity and processes was completed by comparing 4 sites including on the edge of the McMurdo Ice Shelf some 12km west of Cape Armitage, off Scott Base on the east ...


11. Plankton investigations in the Ross Sea in relation to seawater parameters [K014_1970_1971_NZ_6]
Plankton and water was sampled from a site at Cape Bird and the parameters measured include: salinity, light, temperature, biomass of zooplankton and phytoplankton, species identification of zooplankton ...


12. CTD casts and ADCP measurements from New Harbour, McMurdo Sound [K131_2005_2006_NZ_3]
Little is known of the heat and mass exchange that controls the extent and thickness of the frazil ice (or platelet) ice layer beneath land fast sea ice, not are the processes which form frazil ice ...


13. Daily CTD cast measurements near the Erebus Glacier Tongue, McMurdo Sound [K131_2005_2006_NZ_2]
Fjords are a common feature in the coast of Antarctica, particularly in the Ross Sea region, yet little is known about the circulation within most of these fjords. The oceanography of Ferrar fjord ...


14. Deep and shallow CTD casts of turbulence at the sea ice-ocean interface in McMurdo Sound [K131_2005_2006_NZ_1]
Turbulence exists at the sea ice-ocean interface and therefore may have a key role in the latter stages of sea ice formation, including the forming of frazil ice. Both deep and shallow CTD casts were ...


15. Oceanographic and sea ice measurements to determine the influence of platelet ice on the freezing of land fast sea ice [K131_2003_2004_NZ_1]
An understanding of the formation of platelet ice in McMurdo Sound and consequently its influence on the formation of land fast sea ice was investigated over a winter season when ice formation begins ...


16. Simultaneous measurements of ocean current, temperature and salinity measurements to determine the oceanography of McMurdo Sound [K131_2004_2007_NZ_1]
McMurdo Sound forms a natural and accessible laboratory for understanding the fundamental processes that underpin ice-ocean interactions. How changes in the sea ice sheet affect the physical oceanography ...


17. Velocity profiles, and ocean boundary layer experiments of the near ice stratification and platelet ice matrix of the McMurdo Sound sea ice [K131_2007_2009_NZ_2]
Two holes in the sea ice were melted in a location off Cape Armitage. Heated containers were installed over the holes to enable detailed oceanographic experimentation. Sea ice structure, C-axis orientation, ...


18. Temperature and salinity profiles of the water column during platelet ice formation and analysis of the structure and isotopic content of platelet ice [K131_1999_2000_NZ_2]
Platelet ice is a particular sea ice type that is prevalent in McMurdo Sound, probably due to the proximity of the Ross Ice Shelf. There are many details about the formation of platelet ice which ...
