McMurdo Ice Shelf Project: Measurements of ice sheet movement, accumulation and ablation rate, strain/density rates, brine infusion and snow profiles
Entry ID: K001_1962_1984_NZ_1

Abstract: Surface elevation and movement of the McMurdo Ice Shelf and Ross Ice Shelf were conducted as part of the McMurdo Ice Shelf Project which was active from the 1962 to 1970 field seasons.
