Seismic refraction and reflection measurements of the east-west Antarctic plate boundary near the Lowery Glacier and onto the Ross Ice Shelf, south Victoria Land
Entry ID: K101_1990_1991_NZ_1

Abstract: In the 1990-1991 season, a seismic refraction and reflection experiment was completed along a 142 km long line across the transition zone between Ross Embayment and the Transantarctic Mountains, just south of the Nimrod Glacier near the Lowery Glacier within the Transantarctic Mountains to a point on the Ross Ice Shelf about 100 km distant from the Transantarctic Mountain Front. The aim of this ... View entire text
