Geodetic surveys along the Japanese-Swedish IPY Antarctic transectEntry ID: SMHI_IPY_JASE06
Abstract: The surface curvature of the East Antarctic ice sheet was mapped during the JASE-expedition using differential GPS. The scientific programmes were linked to several international consortia and the entire project was part of the Trans-Antarctic Scientific Traverses Expeditions ? Ice Divide of East Antarctica (TASTE-IDEA). The scientific programmes were developed from the International Trans ... Antarctic Scientific Expeditions (ITASE), the Japanese deep ice core drilling programme Dome F (NIPR) and the European Project for Ice Coring in Antarctica (EPICA). We ran a 3000 km traverse between the Japanese station Syowa and the Swedish station Wasa, via the deep ice core drilling sites Dome Fuji and EPICA-DML. The route covered areas in both the Antarctic Southern Atlantic Ocean sector and the Antarctic Indian Ocean sector. The traverse was carried out during the austral summer 2007/08.
