Ice sheet topography and surface characteristics in eastern Wilkes Land, East Antarctica.Entry ID: AADC-00064
Abstract: This dataset is summarised using the abstract from ANARE Research Notes 64, Ice sheet topography and surface characteristics in eastern Wilkes Land, East Antarctica.
A comprehensive survey of the ice-sheet topography and surface physical characteristics was conducted by ANARE glaciological teams in eastern Wilkes Land during the period 1980-86. Oversnow operations were between 112E and 132E ... extending from the coast to 69S and covered the elevation range 800-2300 m asl. This report presents the data set collected on the surface topography, and the spatial distribution of snow accumulation rates, snow surface microrelief and surface wind fields, snow surface physical properties and firn temperatures.
The fields in this dataset include:
Accumulation: (m), (m/a) and (kg/m2/a)
Surface Microrelief Type, Size and Orientation
Mean Surface Microrelief Balance
Deposition microrelief (m)
Erosional microrelief (m)
Depth Firn Temperatures
Geodetic Position Control
