Title: Mackay Sea Valley Site Survey: sea ice motion, water current veolcities, sesimic reflection records
Description:
Abstract:
Month-long sea-ice motion (vertical and horizontal) data using GPS instrumentation at 2 sites within Granite Harbor, southwestern Ross Sea made over November-December 2000. Month-long water current velocity measurements made within Granite Harbor through the 900-m-deep water column in the Mackay Sea Valley. Measurements made using 3 ADCP instruments during November-December 2000. Review of CHIRP seismic lines from Granite Harbor: one set (analog only) from 1994 lodged with Dr Eugene Domack, Hamilton College; another set (digital)from 1996 lodged with Dr Lou Bartek, University of North Carolina. Review of 3.5kHz line (digital) from Granite Harbor lodged with Dr Stuart Henrys, Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences, Wellington, New Zealand.
