Amery Ice Shelf - hot water drill borehole, 2003-04 - AM01b - video footageEntry ID: ASAC_1164_AM01b_video
Abstract: AM01b borehole drilled mid-December 2003.
Profiling measurements conducted over a period of a few days.
Video recording of borehole walls and sea floor benthos.
Sediment sample collected from sea floor.
No long term monitoring instruments installed.
AM01b borehole was drilled within a few hundred metres of where the ice shelf had carried the original AM01 borehole to, in the intervening 2 years. As the AM01 borehole had a mooring suite of instruments, none were emplaced in the AM01b borehole.
There are several video files attached to this metadata record, and further details about them are provided in the accompanying readme document. The data file contains downcam video, sidecam video and miscellaneous video.
