The structural glaciology and movement of the Taylor Glacier, Taylor Valley, Antarctica
Entry ID: K064_1994_2005_NZ_3

Abstract: The structural glaciology and movement of the Taylor Glacier, was investigated over several seasons (98-01) by excavating a tunnel in the right side of the Taylor Glacier, 1.5km upstream of the terminus, to provide access to basal ice and the glacier substrate. Basal ice was sampled and analysed for concentration of base cations and chlorides present. Strain arrays and precision dial gauges were ... View entire text
