1. Land and sea ice sructure west and south of Ross Island measured by ground penetrating radar, UAV, and helicopter EM bird [K053_2009_2012_NZ_1]
This data set decribes surface and volume properties of snow and ice to validate radar satellite measurements. Ground penetrating radar (GPR) at 500 and 1000GHz provides information on snow layers ...


2. Sediment Cores from beneath the Ross Ice Shelf [K001C_2010_2011_NZ_1]   PARENT DIF
28 short (1.3 m) sediment cores were collected from beneath the Ross Ice Shelf using a gravity corer that was deployed through the ice shelf via holes made with the ANDRILL Hot Water Drilling System. ...


3. The ANDRILL drilling project - 1284.87 m and 1138.54 m sediment cores from below the McMurdo/Ross Ice Shelf [K001_ANDRILL]   CHILD DIFs
ANDRILL (ANtarctic DRILLing project) is a multinational (Germany, Italy, New Zealand and USA) initiative to investigate the climate and tectonic history of Antarctica by recovering deep sediment ...


4. High resolution seismic data collected from the RV Nathaniel B Palmer operating in southern McMurdo Sound to determine the timing of fault and basin formation in the Victoria Land Basin [K103_2003_2004_NZ_1]
Over 2,500km of high resolution seismic data was collected from the Ross Sea Region in the Victoria Land Basin to provide information to determine the history of ice margin and water depth changes ...


5. McMurdo Sound Sediment and Tectonic Studies (MSSTS) [McMurdo_Sound_Sediment_and_Tectonic_Study]
The main purpose of the MSSTS project is to obtain a record of the early history of the East Antarctic Ice Sheet and to date its initiation in the Ross Sea region. In addition, it was hoped to relate ...


6. Velocity logging of the CIROS-1 drillhole and determination of the geological structure in the immediate vicinity of the CIROS-1 drillhole using seismic reflection techniques (marine airgun sound source) [K042_1986_1987_NZ_1]
Measurement of the downhole velocity of the CIROS-1 drillhole after the completion of drilling by lowering a hydrophone down the drillhole was unsuccessful due to equipment failure. Determination ...


7. CIROS Project: Obtaining Cenozoic history of the Ross Sea by coring sedimentary strata offshore [K001_CIROS_PROJECT]
The CIROS (Cenozoic Investigation in the Western Ross Sea) drilling project was conducted to obtain a record of the early history of the Antarctic Ice Sheet and the rise of the Transantarctic Mountains. ...


8. Geochemical and geochronology of late quaternary glaciations in the McMurdo Sound Region [K009_1982_1983_NZ_1]   PARENT DIF
The history and mechanics of the late Wisconsin age lakes which have periodically filled many of the lower portions of many of the Valleys that open into McMurdo Sound was studied from samples taken ...


9. Geophysical investigations (seismic, aero and ground base magnetic, gravity, GPR and bathymetry surveys) of the tectonic, sedimentary and volcanic history of the Victoria Land Basing - site survey for ANDRILL project [K001_ANDRILL_SITE_SURVEYS]
A multi-national team (Germany, Italy, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the USA) undertook seismic reflection, aeromagnetic surveys, ground-based magnetic and gravity measurements to image the ...


10. Sediment cores from Lakes Fryxell, Lake Bonney and Lake Joyce, in the McMurdo Dry Valleys, Antarctica [K022_2002_2003_NZ_1]   PARENT DIF
Cores were taken from lakes in the McMurdo Oasis to identify and date periods of low lake level to add to the existing record of periods of high lake level, with the intention of comparing the isotopic ...


11. The Cape Roberts Project [K001_Cape_Roberts_Project]
The Cape Roberts Project was a multinational project in which the Antarctic programmes of Australia, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the USA collaborated together to take a series ...


12. Geochemical and geomorphological investigations of the McMurdo Dry Valleys freshwater and saline water bodies [K211_1963_1987_NZ_1]   CHILD DIFs
Since the 1963-1964 season, Japanese scientists have studied major and trace elements, nutrient matter, stable and radioactive isotopes and organic constituents in lakes and ponds and geological samples ...


13. Geochemical studies, the natural abundance of nitrogen isotopes in soil and evaporates and observations of the sequential changes in the saline lakes of the Dry Valleys and surrounding areas [K211_1978_1979_NZ_1]   PARENT DIF
Geochemical studies on the tritium chronology of Lake Vanda, the natural abundance of nitrogen isotopes in soil and evaporites in the Dry Valleys and observations of the sequential changes in the ...
