Taken from sections of the report:
The 2000/2001 Antarctic Geodesy Summer Program consisted of a number of distinct components. They included:
- ARGN reference mark surveys at Mawson and Davis.
- Orthometric height connections between the Mawson ARGN site (AUS064) and the Mawson TGBM (AUS258).
- Orthometric height connections between the Davis ARGN site (AUS099) and the Davis ... TGBM (AUS186).
- Connection by GPS to the Tide Gauge Benchmarks at Mawson, Davis and Larsemann Hills.
- Strengthen the Australian Antarctic Geodetic Network with GPS observations where possible.
- Establish a permanent Australian monument and connection to existing Chinese monuments in the Grove Mountains.
- Connect to Russian and Chinese Geodetic control points in the Larsemann Hills vicinity for datum unification.
- Derive ellipsoidal heights for lake benchmarks in the Vestfold Hills for the purpose of developing a geometric geoid model for that area.
The following report details the work completed in the 2000/2001 summer season, bu AUSLIG (Now Geoscience Australia) geodetic surveyors, Gary Johnston and Paul Digney between November 2000 and March 2001.
