Amery Ice Shelf - hot water drill borehole, 2003-04 - AM01b
Entry ID: ASAC_1164_AM01b


Summary
Abstract: AM01b borehole drilled mid-December 2003.
Profiling measurements conducted over a period of a few days.
Video recording of borehole walls and sea floor benthos.
Sediment sample collected from sea floor.
No long term monitoring instruments installed.

AM01b borehole was drilled within a few hundred metres of where the ice shelf had carried the original AM01 borehole to, in the intervening 2 years. As the AM01 borehole had a mooring suite of instruments, none were emplaced in the AM01b borehole.
