Summary
Abstract: A gravity survey of the lower Taylor Valley, from New Harbour to the Suess Glacier was completed in the 1977-1978 field season to tie in with the Dry Valley Drilling Project (DVDP) holes and to trace the bedrock profile as part of the DVDP. In the 1979-1980 season, a gravity survey of the Dry Valleys was designed to compliment sea ice gravity surveys made during the same season and to fill gaps in the existing data measured by Bull (1962, 1964), Smithson (1971), Stern (1978), Hicks (1978) and Hicks and Bennet (1981). A detailed gravity traverse was completed down the Taylor Valley from Northwest Mountain to the sea, with stations at 1 to 3 km intervals. Gravity readings were also made at approximately 10km spacings in the Lower Ferrar and on the Dailey Islands.
