Surveyors' Report 1991-92 Mawson-HeardEntry ID: survey_1991-92_mawson_heard
Abstract: Taken from sections of the Report (paraphrased):
In August 1991, I was approached to go to Antarctica for 3 months, detached to AUSLIG, to conduct survey tasks at Mawson and Heard Island over the 1991/1992 field season. The following is my report to AUSLIG/ANTARCTIC Division outlining all results of my participation in the field season.
The Mawson campaign began on 01 Dec 91, with ... the departure of RSV Aurora Australis from Hobart. The experience of working in Antarctica was invaluable and the opportunity to contribute to the scientific development of the AAT was appreciated. In terms of achievement the season was a success, with only a small number of pre-assigned field tasks in the Mawson and Heard Island areas not being completed.
Several tasks were required to be conducted over the field season, in accordance with briefs received prior to departure. A sequence of events is attached.
