In 1968 the Australian Antarctic Division had a group of four men spend over a year on the Amery Ice Shelf. As part of their program of work, they drilled a number of boreholes on the shelf and took temperature readings at various depths down the hole. Stratography notes and density measurements were also made on the holes drilled.
The records of the recorded temperatures, notes on the ... temperature probes used, stratography and density measurements, and a few notes on the work carried out, have been archived at the Australian Antarctic Division.
