Summary
Abstract: The ANARE Lambert Glacier Basin (LGB) series of oversnow traverses were conducted during the period 1989-95. Field operations were carried out along the proximity of the 2500 m elevation contour around the interior basin between Mawson and Davis stations. The main traverse route covered some 2014 km of track from LGB00 at 68.6543 S, 61.1201 E, and LGB72 at 69.9209 S, 76.4933 E. Ice sheet surface ... View entire text

Quality Ice sheet surface velocities have been determined for each of the 73 IMS between LGB00 and LGB72 inclusive. Most of these velocities fall within desired accuracy limits of 10%. For the initial three traverses in the series (1989/90, 1990/91 and1992/93) Wild-Leitz WM102 dual-frequency GPS receivers were used to collect the principal data, with Magnavox MX1502 Transit receivers used in Precise ...
