Geodetic GPS framing network for deformations control in the Terra Nova Bay Area
Entry ID: GPS_network_at_TNB

Abstract: In the frame of the IV Italian expedition in Antarctica (1988/89) a GPS
geodetic network has been established in an area 2000 Km2 wide and close to the
Terra Nova Bay station. The network was partially surveyed in 1989/90, while
complete survey was performed in the 1990/91 and in 1993/94 campaigns. The
network, composed of 12 stations with baselines length of some tens of Km,
includes a detail network of 8 stations placed around the cone of the volcano
Melbourne for the deformation control analysis.
