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...>>
Analysis of fossil wood and leaves of Tertiary age collected from Seymour Island, Antarctica in 2001
Fossils from Palaeogene strata on Seymour Island, Antarctic Peninsula, were studied to determine the nature of vegetation response to the fundamental change from greenhouse to icehouse climates in Antarctica. Palaeoclimate data was derived ...>>
Argon-Argon dating, field data and selected geochemical analysis data of rock samples collected in Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica in 2000/2001
The style and volume of magmatism varies between margins from large volume flood basalts such as the Parana or Deccan provinces to less volumetric margins such as the southern part of the South Atlantic. This case (Collaborative Awards in S...>>
BAS Geological Data - Overview
The British Antarctic Survey holds one of the most extensive collections of Antarctic rocks and fossils anywhere in the world. These are predominately from the Antarctic Peninsula region and Scotia Arc, although there is also important mat...>>
BAS Geological Data - Type and Figured Fossil Collection
The palaeontology collection at the British Antarctic Survey is a unique and internationally important collection of specimens sourced predominantly from the Antarctic Peninsula and Scotia Arc. The collection was started in the 1940s and co...>>
Geological station and sample field data plus processed geochemical data from rocks collected in eastern Ellsworth Land, Antarctica during the 2002/2003 field season
Examining the provenance of certain sedimentary rock sequences can potentially identify where sequences were originally deposited in relation to each other. Minerals found in sediments that are resistant to earth surface processes such as w...>>
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 ...>>
Raw geochemical analyses data (zircon analysis) from rocks collected in eastern Ellsworth Land, Antarctica during the 2002/2003 field season
A new technique that coupled SHRIMP U-Pb analyses with Laser ablation ICP isotope analyses for detrital zircons enabled the provenance of sediments from the English Coast region to be better assessed than had been previously possible. Such...>>
Rock samples collected in Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica in 2000/2001
The style and volume of magmatism varies between margins from large volume flood basalts such as the Parana or Deccan provinces to less volumetric margins such as the southern part of the South Atlantic. This CASE (Collaborative Awards in S...>>
Rock samples, rock powders and mineral seperates collected from eastern Ellsworth Land, Antarctica during the 2002/2003 field season
Despite the important tectonic and stratigraphic setting, rocks from the English Coast area remain largely unstudied, as the paucity of exposure has hindered detailed structural and sedimentological analysis. Samples were collected for zir...>>
Samples of fossil wood and leaves of Tertiary age collected from Seymour Island, Antarctica in 2001
During field work in 2001 over 1600 specimens were collected from four main fossil plant assemblages: the 'Nordenksjold flora' from the Cross Valley Formation of Late Palaeocene age; and 3 floras from La Meseta Formation i) Flora2 from th...>>
Sediment core samples and analyses of sediment core samples from the Moutonnee, Ablation and Citadel Lakes, Antarctica, 2001/2002
Sediment cores were collected from the 3 sites (approx. 6m from Moutonnee Valley, 2.5m from Ablation Valley and 5m from Citadel Bastion). They were analysed for physical property data including: magnetic susceptibility, wet weight, loss on ...>>
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...>>
Sediment trap and delta data from the Moutonnee Lake, Antarctica, 2001/2002
Sediment trap and delta samples were taken from the Moutonnee Lake in 2001/2002. Samples were analysed for grain size, Carbon and Nitrogen content and isotopic Carbon content. Delta samples were also analysed for luminescence dating. ...>>
Soil, rock and biological samples from the Moutonnee, Ablation and Citadel Lakes, Antarctica, 2001/2002
The general reference data consists of soil, rock and biological samples. These were analysed for grain size, CHN and carbon isotopes. ...>>
