Quality Complete for approximately 570 km of ground survey track. Optical levelling measurements were taken at 300-400 m intervals from sea level at Landing Bluff (69.74 S, 73.71 E) adjacent to Sandefjord Bay, across and along the shelf to J205 on Jetty Peninsula (70.81 S, 68.54 E). Tellurometer closures were obtained for several endpoints of the traverse route to Blustery Cliffs (71.42 S, 67.88 E) on ... View entire text
