Amery Ice Shelf - hot water drill borehole, 2005-06 - AM04
Entry ID: ASAC_1164_AM04


Summary
Abstract: Amery Ice Shelf AM04 borehole drilled mid-January 2006. Sub-shelf water profiling measurements conducted over a period of a few days. Partial video recording of borehole walls and sea floor benthos. Collection of targeted ice core samples. Sediment sample collected from sea floor. Long term monitoring instruments installed (thermistors in ice, 3 x CTD in ocean cavity).

This is a parent record - see the child records for further information.

This device stopped working by the 2011/2012 season, and all sensors were declared non-functional.
