The modern sedimentation regime at the snout of the Ferrar Glacier, New Harbour
Entry ID: K042_1985_1986_NZ_1

Abstract: The modern sedimentation regime at the snout of the Ferrar Glacier was investigated for comparison with the upper sediments cored in the CIROS-2 hole and to determine the modern sedimentation processes on the McMurdo Sound sea floor. Seafloor sediments were taken near the outfall of two meltwater channels on the Ferrar Glacier snout to compare with sediments from the CIROS-2 core. A grid pattern ... View entire text
