Earth gravity field for ice thickness data: LGB traverses 1989-95
Entry ID: LGB_Gra_traverse


Summary
Abstract: The Lambert Glacier Basin (LGB) series of five oversnow traverses were conducted from 1989-95. LaCoste and Romberg gravity meters were used to record measurements of the Earth's gravity field approximately every 2 km along the 2014 km main traverse route from LGB00 (68.6543 S, 61.1201 E) near Mawson Station, to LGB72 (69.9209 S, 76.4933 E) near Davis Station. Gravity readings were also obtained at ... View entire text

Quality The dataset is complete on a 2 km spatial resolution along the entire 2014 km of main LGB traverse route. The 5 km spatial resolution data along the north-west parallel offset route has not been processed. LaCoste and Romberg Model-G gravity meters were used to take field readings at a 2 km spatial resolution around the 2014 km of main LGB traverse route in Kemp Land, and at 5 km spatial ...
