3. The ANDRILL drilling project - 1284.87 m and 1138.54 m sediment cores from below the McMurdo/Ross Ice Shelf [K001_ANDRILL]   CHILD DIFs
ANDRILL (ANtarctic DRILLing project) is a multinational (Germany, Italy, New Zealand and USA) initiative to investigate the climate and tectonic history of Antarctica by recovering deep sediment ...


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. Investigations of the glaciology and hydrology in the Terra Nova Bay regions [K162_1984_1985_NZ_1]
The occurrence or non-occurrence of both glacial moraines and past sea levels in the Terra Nova Bay area was investigated with a view to establishing a glacial chronology to supplement the Dry Valleys ...


7. The Dry Valleys Drilling Project [Dry_Valley_Drilling_Project]
The Dry Valleys Drilling Project (DVDP) was predominately an international project between scientists from New Zealand, the US, and Japan, which drilled 14 holes in the Dry Valleys of Antarctica (especially ...


8. Determination of the Sirius Group (Neogene deposits) mode of deposition at Allan Hills, Mt Feather and Table Mountain [K042_1997_2001_NZ_1]
An ancient glacial deposit termed the Sirius Group is a collection of Neogene deposits that crop out at high elevations throughout the Transantarctic Mountains (TAM). The paleoflow direction and how ...


9. A study of the glacial history of the McMurdo Oasis by the dating of lacustre carbonates [K009_1979_1980_NZ_1]   PARENT DIF
Three holes were drilled into frozen sediments around Lake Fryxell. The first was 4ft in depth in frozen silts approx 50m NW of the Fryxell Hut. The second hole was 30m east of the first hole and ...


10. Geophysical investigations (seismic, aero and ground base magnetic, gravity, GPR and bathymetry surveys) of the tectonic, sedimentary and volcanic history of the Victoria Land Basing - site survey for ANDRILL project [K001_ANDRILL_SITE_SURVEYS]
A multi-national team (Germany, Italy, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the USA) undertook seismic reflection, aeromagnetic surveys, ground-based magnetic and gravity measurements to image the ...


11. Analysis of shallow cores (stratigraphy, thickness and facies analysis, ageing) from Allan Hills and Table Mountain and assessment of contamination of diesel drilling fluid from DVDP-6 core, Lake Vida, 1972 [K047_2000_2001_NZ_1]
Shallow coring of permafrost glacial sediments was completed of the Sirius Group at Allan Hills to provide stratigraphic cores for thickness and facies analysis and at Table Mountain for comparative ...


12. Geological and geomorphic data and Sirius Group core analysis (stratigraphy, petrographical analysis, ground temperature and isotope analysis) from Table Mountain to determine the depositional history [K047_1996_1997_NZ_1]
The depositional and post depositional history of the Sirius Group tillite in the Dry Valleys area was investigated to resolve the ongoing debate as to whether the East Antarctic ice sheet formed ...


13. GPR surveys and sediment sampling for OSL dating to determine the formation of fossil marine deltas in the vicinity of Wales and Commonwealth streams, New Harbour [K015_2004_2005_NZ_1]
The subsurface sedimentary structures that make up New Harbour deltas were investigated using GPR to develop a model for the formation of the fossil marine deltas that are well preserved along the ...


14. Investigation of coastal sites in Granite Harbour for evidence of Holocene glacier expansion and a survey of the moraine ridge system in Cuff Cape [K042_1989_1990_NZ_3]
A reconnaisance survey of both coastal features in Granite Harbour and nunataks on the south side of the Mackay Glacier was conducted to search for evidence of Holocene glacier expansion both at sea ...


15. GPR profiles and sediment samples from raised beaches along the McMurdo Sound coast to understand the composition, make up and mode of contruction of the beaches [K015_1998_2000_NZ_1]
Due to the continued uplift of the coastline as a response to the retreat of the last glacial maximum ice sheet, beaches are raised above the level of wave and ice push activity and are essentially ...


16. Mapping and sampling of ice moulded bedrock, erratic boulders, moraines and calcite precipitates for exposure age dating using cosmogenic nuclides, from the Rennick Glacier area, north Victoria Land [K015_2000_2002_NZ_1]
