Summary
Abstract: ANARE seismic reflections obtained on route from Wilkes Station to Vostok in 1961/62 and 1962/63 seasons. Data restricted to stations within 300 miles of the coast.

Oversnow (Weasel) vehicle, Caterpillar Tractors.

For navigation, astro fixes taken at each station with navigation vehicle controlled by asto compass.

Quality Travel times converted to ice thicknesses based on velocity profiles calculated from refraction shooting data.

Data collected between Vostok and point 300 miles from coast considered too poor to be used for ice thickness determination. Internal_ref1 = station.

The latitudes and longitudes are accurate to within 500 yards or 450 m (approx).

An entry of -9999 in the spreadsheet indicates null data.
Access Constraints Raw data were stored on 35 mm black and white film. Copied film record; positive or negative (original data). Spreadsheet ice thicknesses (reduced data).
