Title: Data Report on 1981 Traverses From Casey For IAGP
Description:
Abstract:
The Casey Traverse Program was Australia's major contribution to the International Antarctic Glaciological Project, aimed at determining the galciological regime and processes, and deducting some of the history and future of a sizeable part of the east Antarctic ice sheet approximately bounded by longitude 60 and 160E, and latitude 80S. Four traverses operated from Casey during 1981: Autumn (2 months), Winter I (2 weeks), Winter II (3 weeks), and Spring (3.5 months). Data collected from the traverses included: * Ice velocity at several stations via the use of JMR Doppler Satellite surveying equipment. * Measurements of snow accumulation. * Surface profiles by barometric levelling * Ice thickness and bedrock profile using ice radar * Horizontal distances along the Undulation Line * 10m depth snow temperatures * Density of surface snow * Snow samples for stable oxygen isotope ration analysis * Regular determinations of gravity The collected data was collated into a report that is archived at the Australian Antarctic Division.
