Reflection seismic, magnetic, gravimetric survey of the Pacific Margin of the Antarctic Peninsula (Summer 1989-90, 1991-1992)
Entry ID: X89_92AP

Abstract: During the Antarctic summers1989 - 1990 and 1991 - 1992, the
Osservatorio Geofisico Sperimentale realized a geophysical survey in
the Ross Sea, making use of the Research Vessel OGS - Explora,
collecting magnetic, gravimetric and seismic data. This research has
been carried out in the context of the Nation Research Program in
Antarctic (PNRA), coordinated by the Italian ENEA, under the auspices
of ... View entire text
