Entry ID: early_iceberg_obs

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Between 1954 and 1975, iceberg observations were collected on Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions (ANARE) by Antarctic expeditioners on a volunteer basis as they travelled to and from Antarctica. No fixed format for data collection had been determined, and many of the observations recorded are in diary format.

The data have not been converted to electronic form, and are available only in the original logbooks held at the National Archives Office.
