Title: Heard Island glacier fluctuations and climatic change - 2003/04 Fieldwork
Description:
Abstract:
This report describes the data collected for ASAC project 2363 (a continuation of ASAC 1158). A full report of the data collected and the work completed is available for download with the dataset. The download file contains data in the following areas: Ablation Chemistry DEM - Digital Elevation Model Lagoon Bathymetry Meltwater Photos Report RES - Radio Echo Sounder Surveys Weather Observations This CD contains data collected by the Heard Island glaciology team during the 2003-04 Australian Antarctic Division expedition, as well as some data from the previous expedition in November 2000. The data report associated with these files is provided as a PDF in the Report folder. Description of data files available on CD Ablation folder survey_canes_ablation.xls Excel file with the measured height of each survey wand above snow/ice surface for the field season. BG35_pinger.xls Excel file with sonic ranger data for BG35. BG50_pinger.xls Excel file with sonic ranger data for BG50. Chemistry folder Ion_Chemistry.xls Excel file with analyses of chloride, sulphate, nitrate, Mg, Ca, Na of samples collected from crevasses and cores. Oxygen_isotopes.xls Excel file with dO18 analyses of samples collected from crevasses and cores. DEM folder dem_2003.grd ASCII file with the 2003 DEM grid, generated using Golden Software Surfer v7.0. Header file format is: id The identification string DSAA that identifies the file as an ASCII grid file. nx nynx is the integer number of grid lines along the X axis (columns) ny is the integer number of grid lines along the Y axis (rows) xlo xhi xlo is the minimum X value of the grid xhi is the maximum X value of the grid ylo yhi ylo is the minimum Y value of the grid yhi is the maximum Y value of the grid zlo zhi zlo is the minimum Z value of the grid zhi is the maximum Z value of the grid grid row 1 grid row 2 grid row 3 -these are the rows of Z values of the grid, organized in row order. Each row has a constant Y coordinate. Grid row 1 corresponds to ylo and the last grid row corresponds to yhi. Within each row, the Z values are arranged from xlo to xhi. Blanked grid nodes are given a Z value of 1.070141E+038. Rows are 39.855 m apart, Columns are 40 m apart. dem_11.xls Excel file with all points used to calculate the dem_2003.xls grid (refer to A2). The folder also contains high resolution jpeg images of Fig. 16 and the data distribution figure (A2). Lagoon bathymetry folder Folder containing Excel files with Easting, Northing (acquired using Garmin GPS V; WGS84, UTM zone 43) and depth (acquired using Garmin 'Fishfinder' depth sounder) for each lagoon surveyed. Also high resolution jpeg images of bathymetric maps reproduced in appendix A3. Meltwater folder Contains an excel file with stream profiles and flux calculations, and repeat measurements of Brown Lagoon outflow stream. Also contains jpeg photos of three of the inflow streams, and an image showing their location using the Quickbird satellite image for reference. Photos folder Contains jpeg digital photos used in this report. Report folder HI_data_report_screen.pdf HI_data_report_print.pdf This data report is reproduced as both a low and high resolution Adobe Acrobat PDF file, for on-screen viewing and printing respectively. RES folder BG_35_2000.xls Excel file with RES data for the BG35 profile, 2000 field season. RES.xls Excel file with RES data for the BG25 and BG20 profiles, 2003-04 field season. Surveys folder all_survey_points.xls Excel file with the position of the survey markers and additional points. daily_position_BG50.xls Excel file with daily (occasionally more frequent) DGPS position near BG50 kinematic_2000.xls Excel file with all DGPS kinematic surveys conducted during the 2000 field season. kinematic_surveys.xls Excel file with all DGPS kinematic surveys conducted during the 2003-04 field season. surface_site_surveys.xls Excel file with the DGPS repeat survey positions of each survey site, for the 2000 and 2003-04 field seasons, and velocity calculations for each epoch. terminus_surveys.xls Excel file with the DGPS surveys of the position of the glacier terminus. Weather observations folder AANDERAA_data.xls Excel file with data recorded by the automatic weather station at 550 m a.s.l. all_data_comparison.xls Excel file with compilation and graphs of all data from each of the Brown Glacier AWS. MAWS1_data.xls Excel file with data recorded by the automatic weather station at 115 m a.s.l. MAWS2_data.xls Excel file with data recorded by the automatic weather station at 920 m a.s.l. precipitation_record.xls Excel file with rain gauge records from Jacka Valley, Brown Hut, Spit Bay and Capsize Beach. ttec_T_RH_data.xls Excel file containing temperature and relative humidity data from the three T-TEC loggers, deployed at Jacka Valley, Capsize Beach, and Doppler Hill. wx station photos folder Folder containing jpeg photos of each of the weather stations, as well as the field camp observing sites.
