Entry ID: K064_1994_2005_NZ_5

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The structure and movement of the Victoria Upper Glacier, Victoria Valley, was investigated over several seasons. A network of 13 points on the glacier surface were marked with bamboo flags and the position recorded by GPS (over a three week period and re-measured the following season) to measure velocity and calculate surface strain. A tunnel at the terminus of the glacier was excavated over two ... View entire text
