Entry ID: K162_1985_1986_NZ_1

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: Glaciological work was carried out at Cape Bird to determine the glaciers margin structure. Initially, the hydrology of the region was investigated to determine the feasibility of measuring stream flows at the Northern colony to aide biologists in measuring movement and discharge of nutrients by the streams. It was found that all of the main streams were overladen with gravel sediments and flowed ... View entire text
