1. Studies of the surface strain of Erebus Glacier Tongue to determine the process of calving [K009_1977_1978_NZ_3]
The surface deformation of the Erebus Glacier Tongue was measured in order to elucidate the calving mechanisms for the formation of icebergs. Surface strain, surface tilt, surface velocity and long ...

2. The Ross Sea Iceberg Project [K201_1983_1989_NZ_1]
The Ross Sea Iceberg Project aims to determine the distribution, sources, movement and sizes of icebergs in the Ross Sea. These characteristics have previously not been well known but are important ...

3. Long term data from strain meters placed on the Erebus Glacier Tongue and surrounding sea ice measuring travelling flexural waves and strain measurements [K131_1983_1990_NZ_1]
Using a strain meter with a 500mm gauge length, the elastic and plastic strain of the Erebus Glacier tongue was measured as it moves in response to waves and swells present in the surrounding sea. ...

4. Measurements of the physical properties of Antarctic fast ice and their variations throughout the growth season [K213_1986_1987_NZ_1]
The physical properties of Antarctic fast ice were investigated throughout a full year of growth. The aim of the project was three fold; 1) to document the basic physical properties of Antarctic fast ...
