Abstract: In the 1980/81 and 1982/83 Antarctic field seasons, drilling and mapping were undertaken as part of a programme in the eastern Taylor Valley to investigate the late Cenozoic glacial history of the Taylor Valley and the surrounding environment. Previously, glacigenic deposits were cored in the eastern Taylor Valley in the 1974/75 season by the Dry Valleys Drilling Project (DVDP) and studies of the ... View entire text
