Seismograph data from the David Glacier region near Terra Nova Bay to determine the origins of low magnitude seismicity in the area: brittle ice failure, basal shearing beneath the glacier, or tectonic events?
Entry ID: K101_2003_2004_NZ_1

Abstract: Temporary seismograph stations placed in the Transantarctic Mountains have recorded regular, low magnitude seismicity. The origin of the quakes could not be uniquely discriminated among brittle ice failure, basal shearing beneath the glacier or tectonic events. A targeted passive seismic array was placed in the David Glacier region to directly investigate the seismicity of the region by ... View entire text
