Victoria Land Network for DEFormation control (VLNDEF) aimed at the crustal deformation detection materialized and surveyed during the 1999-2000 Italian antarctic Expedition
Entry ID: GPS_Victoria_Land_network

Abstract: In the framework of VLNDEF Programme (Victoria Land DEFormation control) aimed
at the crustal deformation detection in the Victoria Land area, the main field
activity was materialization and surveying of network. Both goals were fully
achieved during the 1999-2000 Italian Antarctic Expedition. The VLNDEF project
is carried on within the ANTarctic neo TECtonics Programme (ANTEC). The VLNDEF
network consists of 20 GPS stations. It extends for about 500Km northwards of
Terra Nova Bay (TNB) to reach the coast of the Pacific Ocean; and for about 200
Km inland.
