4. Geological surveys, seismology, chemistry, geology and lava sampling at the Mt Erebus summit crater to investigate the behaviour of the volcano [K044_1972_1982_NZ_1]
An international study of the volcanic activity and geological processes taking place on Mt Erebus were investigated over 10 seasons. The broad program involved several investigations. ...


5. Seismic, infrasonic and magnetic induction data from Mt Erebus: 1980-1986, The International Mt Erebus Seismci Survey (IMESS) [K044_1980_1986_NZ_1]
The International Mt Erebus Seismic Survey (IMESS) was conducted on Mt Erebus to monitor and assess the seismic activity of the volcano year round. Seismic, infrasonic and magnetic induction data ...


6. Video surveillance recordings and seismic activity of Mt Erebus: 1986-1991, The International Mt Erebus Eruption Mechanism Study (IMEEMS) [K044_1986_1991_NZ_1]
Studies of the location of earthquake foci at Mt Erebus found that eruption earthquakes had an apparent range of depths to 4km, but that infrasonic signals were more consistant with a surface origin. ...


7. Investigations of the glacial and periglacial geology of the Miers and Taylor Valley [K042_1964_1965_NZ_3]
The glacial and periglacial geology of the Miers and Taylor Valley was investigated. Special interests of the Miers and Taylor Valleys lie in their ice covered lakes and in the prolematic benches ...


8. Geological and survey operations between the Nimrod and Beardmore Glaciers 1959-1960 [K002_1959_1960_NZ_1]
As part of the TransAntarctic Expedition, the Victoria Land mountain chain extending from Cape Adare to the Horlick Mountains was surveyed during the 1957-1959 field seasons. Two large unmapped areas ...


9. Investigations of the glaciology and hydrology in the Terra Nova Bay regions [K162_1984_1985_NZ_1]
The occurrence or non-occurrence of both glacial moraines and past sea levels in the Terra Nova Bay area was investigated with a view to establishing a glacial chronology to supplement the Dry Valleys ...


10. Influence of the lithological and geotechnical properties of rocks upon morphology of glacial valleys [K009_1984_1985_NZ_1]
The long and cross sectional forms of glacial valleys and cirques are a reflection of relationship between the abrasive and plucking processes occuring at the base of a glacier and the resistance ...


11. Investigation of Antarctic lakes and lake sediments in the Ross Sea Region [K009_1969_1990_NZ_1]   CHILD DIFs
The study of Antarctic lakes and lake sediments in the Ross Sea Region, particularly in the McMurdo Dry Valleys, with particular emphasis on the climatic history was a continuing program of the Waikato ...


12. The relationship between the structure of Shapeless Mountain and the volcanics of the Mawson Formation [K042_1982_1983_NZ_7]
Shapeless Mountain appears so because it is quite irregular structurally in contrast to the consistent near-horizontal stratification in the Beacon Supergroup elsewhere. Shapeless Mountain also has ...


13. Deformation surveys of the Mt Erebus crater from 1980 to 1985 [K044_1980_1985_NZ_1]
A programme to monitor volcanic activity about the active summit crater of Mt Erebus was conducted by the NZ Geological Survey from December 1980 to December 1985. The surveys were made annually in ...
