AFI 07/02_07 Subglacial Lake Ellsworth - GRAVITY data, Antarctica, 2007/08
Gravity data acquired in the region of Subglacial Lake Ellsworth. Instrument Lacoste & Romberg land gravity meter. Drift control primarily contained within the local area. Single, one-way tie to international gavity base station network...>>
AFI 07/02_08 Subglacial Lake Ellsworth 20-m - TEMPERATURE data, Antarctica, 2007/08
Measurement of temperature at the base of a 20-m deep borehole in the region of Subglacial Lake Ellsworth. Resistance of two calibrated thermistors measured at the base of a 20 m deep borehole....>>
AFI 07/22_01 - Direct GPS measurements of the Weddell Sea ice shelves
During the 2007/08 summer field season 15 GPS receivers, recording position observations every 15 seconds for 24 hours a day, were successfully deployed over the Larsen C and Filchner-Ronne ice shelves. Six of these stations were uplifted a...>>
AFI 09/01_01 - Geodatabase of terrestrial and marine dates
More well-constrained dates are urgently required in order to reduce the complexity visible in radiocarbon dates on the continental shelf. The geodatabase provides many conflicting ages, and improving chronological control on ice sheet retr...>>
AFI 09/01_02 - Glacier outlines (from 1988, 2001 and 2009)
Glacial outlines of the APIS (Antarctict Peninsula Ice Sheet) for 1988, 2001, 2009, (now incorporatated into the GLIMS project)...>>
Airborne radio-echo sounding (RES) measurements to investigate widespread enhanced flow in the interior of the East Antarctic ice sheet, 2001
Airborne radio-echo sounding (RES) measurements of surface elevation, bed topography and ice thickness were made across the Bailey/Slessor region of East Antarctica. The primary objective of this research was to investigate the newly discov...>>
Analysis of Snow/Ice cores collected from Rothschild, Latady and Smyley Islands, Antarctica during 2006
The project was concerned with understanding how air mass origin and meteorology affect the mass accumulation of snow in areas of the Antarctic Peninsula, and how the atmosphere's properties are preserved in the snow. Ground truth measurem...>>
Antarctic Peninsula Lake Database
A geographic databse of lakes on the Antarctic Peninsula. A database of lake locations and subsiduary information. Fields include: Lake unique id, Name, location, imager reference/how identified, locality, size (longest axis), a...>>
Antarctic Snow Accumulation Map and Data
The map is derived from a compilation of field measurements. Satellite observations from AMSR-E and AVHRR instruments are used to guide the interpolation. The effective resolution of the map is approximately 100 km. The estimates of root me...>>
Automatic Weather Station (AWS) data collected from Rothschild, Latady and Smyley Islands, Antarctica during 2005
The project was concerned with understanding how air mass origin and meteorology affect the mass accumulation of snow in areas of the Antarctic Peninsula, and how the atmosphere's properties are preserved in the snow. Three micro-power Aut...>>
Bedmap data - surface elevation, bed topography and ice thickness of the Bailey/Slessor region of East Antarctica, 2001
Analysis of surface elevation, bed topography and ice thickness across the Bailey/Slessor region of East Antarctica. ...>>
Geophyiscal data including multibeam bathymetry and sub-bottom profiler collected from the Weddell Sea and Marguerite Bay during February and March 2002
Ice-rafted (Heinrich) layers in the North Atlantic provide clear evidence that basins of large Quaternary ice sheets have, in the past, exhibited major dynamic instabilities. The presence of large ice sheets on the modern Antarctic continen...>>
Glacier flow vertical motion measurements, Antarctic Peninsula, 2005/07
Correction, Verification and Context, of Satellite-Derived Elevation Changes on the Antarctic Peninsula CVaCS-DECAP The aim of the project was to measure the various factors that affect altitude of snow surfaces in Antarctica, in order ...>>
Long-Term Monitoring of Signy Lake Chemistry by BAS 1963-2004
The long term monitoring of water chemistry in Signy Island lakes is unique in polar limnology, in its duration (30+ years), detail, and range of sites. It details seasonal patterns of snow and ice cover, inorganic nutrient status and chlor...>>
Major ions concentrations from monthly snow pit and surface sampling at Halley, Antarctica between 2004 and 2005
Measurements of the concentrations of major ions in snow samples were made, using ion chromatography, between 2004 and 2005. Snow was collected using surface sampling and snow pits. The work was carried out at the Clean Air Sector Laborat...>>
Multibeam bathymetry and sub-bottom profiler data collected in the Bellingshausen Sea, 2004
The main aim of this project was to carry out the first systematic investigation of the former ice drainage basin in the southern Bellingshausen Sea, using sediment cores, swath bathymetry by means of the EM120 multibeam echo sounder and th...>>
Sediment cores collected in the Bellingshausen Sea, 2004
The main aim of this project was to carry out the first systematic investigation of the former ice drainage basin in the southern Bellingshausen Sea, using sediment cores, swath bathymetry by means of the EM120 multibeam echo sounder and th...>>
Vibro and gravity sediment cores plus associated data collected from the Weddell Sea and Marguerite Bay during February and March 2002
Ice-rafted (Heinrich) layers in the North Atlantic provide clear evidence that basins of large Quaternary ice sheets have, in the past, exhibited major dynamic instabilities. The presence of large ice sheets on the modern Antarctic continen...>>
