1. WAISCORES: Deep Ice Coring in West Antarctica [NSIDC-0120_1]
The WAISCORES project is part of the National Science Foundation Office of Polar Programs' West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) initiative, which is aimed at understanding the influence of the West Antarctic ...


2. Ice thickness measurements of the Erebus Ice Tongue by radio echo sounder [K162_1985_1986_NZ_2]
The Erebus Ice Tongue breaks off near its mid point in single regular calving events at about 30 year intervals. A number of studies have been made on the growth rate, mass balance, ice physics and ...


3. Ice thickness measurements of the Wright Lower Glacier using radio echo sounders [K162_1985_1986_NZ_3]
The Wright Lower Glacier develops a complex of lake and glacier ice where the glacier enters Lake Brownworth. The form of the subglacial ice water surface was investigated. Ice thicknesses were determined ...


4. Interactions between liquid water and ice at the Wright Lower glacier and Minna Saddle, McMurdo Ice Shelf [K064_2006_2008_NZ_1]
To understand the nature of interactions between liquid water and ice our investigation focussed on the Wright Lower glacier, the southern end of McMurdo Ice Shelf (Minna Saddle), the margin of the ...


5. Data Report on 1981 Traverses From Casey For IAGP [iagp_casey_traverse_results]
The Casey Traverse Program was Australia's major contribution to the International Antarctic Glaciological Project, aimed at determining the galciological regime and processes, and deducting some ...


6. A 30-Year Record of Surface Mass Balance (1966-95) and Motion and Surface Altitude (1975-95) at Wolverine Glacier, Alaska [USGS_OFR_2004_1069]
Scientific measurements at Wolverine Glacier, on the Kenai Peninsula in south-central Alaska, began in April 1966. At three long-term sites in the research basin, the measurements included snow depth, ...


7. Ice Radar Traverse Notes, Mirny-Dome C, 1978 [ice-radar-traverse-mirny-domec-1978]
Notes from the ice radar used on the traverse from Mirny to Dome C in 1978, recording file usage for various locations, and initial observations of ice thickness from the radar. These documents have ...


8. Report on Ice Thickness Measurements, Wilkes Land 1965/66 [icethickness_wilkes_1965]
A report on the ice thickness measurements taken during the 1965/66 season on Wilkes Land. The work was done in three parts - an autumn and spring traverse, and a trip to S2. Includes notes on method, ...


9. Accumulation Measurements, Law Dome 1959-1960 [accumulation_lawdome_1960]
A collection of information on the position and measurements of snow accumulation via accumulation stakes placed on Law Dome in 1959, and measured over 1959 and 1960. These documents have been archived ...


10. Airborne Topographic and Ice Thickness Survey of the Vanderford Glacier, 1983-85 [vanderford_data_1983_85]
A report outlining the work done on the Vanderford (and Adams) glaciers in 1983/84 and 1984/85, detailing the methods they used for determining ice thickness and velocity. Includes a copy of the program ...


11. Greenland Snow Pit and Core Stratigraphy (Analog and Digital Formats) [G10004]
This data set is comprised of scientific field study notebooks from geologist Carl S. Benson describing his traverses of Greenland from 1952 to 1955. The notebooks contain data on Greenland snow accumulation, ...


12. Thwaites International Polar Year (IPY) Geophysics, Antarctica [NSIDC-0524]
This data set presents ice sheet history and dynamics on the Thwaites Glacier and Pine Island Glacier in the Amundsen Sea sector of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet.
