Submarine Topography of Lutzow-Holm Bay, Antarctica
Project DescriptionThe Submarine Topography of Lutzow-Holm Bay, Antarctica was was
investigated by radio-echo sounding from the surface of sea
ice. The program started in 1960, but the intensive surveys were
conducted in 1968, 1973 and in particular 1981. The data were
compiled as the bathymetric chart of the Lutzow-Holm Bay. The
study revealed cComplicated topography formed by former glacial
erosion exerted by former expanded ice sheets.
This project comes from the National Institute of Polar Research
(NIPR) which was established in Tokyo on September 29, 1973.
