Mackay Sea Valley Site Survey: sea ice motion, water current veolcities, sesimic reflection recordsEntry ID: MSV_SiteSurvey
Abstract: Month-long sea-ice motion (vertical and horizontal) data using GPS
instrumentation at 2 sites within Granite Harbor, southwestern Ross
Sea made over November-December 2000.
Month-long water current velocity measurements made within Granite
Harbor through the 900-m-deep water column in the Mackay Sea
Valley. Measurements made using 3 ADCP instruments during
... November-December 2000.
Review of CHIRP seismic lines from Granite Harbor: one set (analog
only) from 1994 lodged with Dr Eugene Domack, Hamilton College;
another set (digital)from 1996 lodged with Dr Lou Bartek, University
of North Carolina.
Review of 3.5kHz line (digital) from Granite Harbor lodged with Dr
Stuart Henrys, Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences,
Wellington, New Zealand.
