Description:
Abstract:
The data include a 1:10,000 scale map of the surfical glacial and periglacial features of the Amery Oasis, East Antarctica. Features currently include: areas covered by exposed bedrock, fluvial sediments and moraine moraine ridges streams (flowing during the 2003/04 season) watercourses lakes cosmogenic exposure ages degree of weathering and includes areas of glaciers, glacial bedforms, scree and patterned ground. Rock samples are currently held by Duanne White (as at 2015-09-23), but will eventually be archived at Geoscience Australia.

Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Field mapping was conducted across the region during the 2003-04 season. Distances between traverse lines varied averaged about ~2km, but vary from 1km to 10km. These areas are specified in the data. Mapping was performed on a rectified SPOT-5 2.5m resolution image taken in January 2004, with 1974 and 1995 stereo colour aerial photography used as supplement where SPOT data were snow covered or ambiguous. Air photo runs include: Film CAS/C 8574 run 23, 24 and 27; CAS/C 8575 run 26; CAS/C 8572 run 25 and ANT 1059 run 7-10. Features were digitised on the SPOT image using ARCGIS 9, and are accurate to within 20-50m. Relative age for the features is constrained by surface weathering parameters and stratigraphic relationships. Absolute ages for mid-late pleistocene (less than 1Ma) features are derived from cosmogenic exposure age dating to within ~10-20%. Ages prior to this period are constrained by reference to the Pagodroma Group, dated using diatom stratigraphy. Dating reliability is specified for each feature within the attribute tables.
