Summary
Abstract: The Lambert Glacier Basin (LGB) series of five oversnow traverses were conducted from 1989-95. Snow accumulation rate measurements were recorded every 2 km along the 2014 km main traverse track from LGB00 (68.6543 S, 61.1201 E) near Mawson Station to LGB72 (69.9209 S, 76.4933 E) near Davis Station, and at 7 selected sites around the basin where local accumulation cane farm gridded arrays were ...

Quality Very few data gaps appeared in almost 1000 accumulation rate measurements along the 2014 km of traverse track, those that did occur were simply due to breakage loss of canes caused by the strong plateau winds. Snow accumulation data were obtained using an extensible tape measure to record the heights above the snow surface of the tops of bamboo accumulation-navigation canes and pairs of aluminium ...
