GPR surveys and sand samples for OSL dating and studies of grainsize, petrology and sediment provenance of Victoria Valley sand dunes
Entry ID: K015_2006_2007_NZ_1

Abstract: The structure and evolution of sand dunes in Victoria Valley was investigated by completing a GPR survey (with 50, 100, 200, 250, 400, 450 and 900 MHz antennae) to successfully image dune structure and stratigraphy in three locations: Packard Dunes, whaleback dune and the 'Big Dune' north of Lake Vida. Preliminary interpretation of dune stratigraphy allowed selected sample locations for sampling ... View entire text
