The interpretation of 19 snow pits dug by the 1959-60 Victoria Land Traverse gives a mean annual accumulation of 16 cm of water equivalent for the area studied. Deposition is thought to occur in the form of sastrugi instead of in blanket form and this introduces a serious error in the interpretation. Approximate mean annual air temperatures ranged between -38.4°c and -47.4°c. A map of the traverse route shows contoured elevations and sastrugi observations. The highest elevation was 2591 meters. A compilation of accumulation stakes emplaced by this traverse is made available. The Rennick Glacier which empties into Rennick Bay...

This is the third annual progress report submitted by Institute of Polar Studies researchers to the National Science Foundation (Grant No. GA-898X) on the geochronology and geochemistry of rocks from the Transantarctic Mountains, Antarctica. The results reported in this report are preliminary in nature.

Amchitka Island is composed of volcanic rocks and minor amounts of sandstones, conglomerates and glacial deposits, all of relatively recent geologic age. Most of these rocks are fractured and faulted. The island has undergone a series of upward and downward movements relative to sea level. Much of the present topography of the island has been conditioned by its past positions relative to sea level, as well as by glacial and near-glacial climatic conditions. Geomorphologically the island can be separated into six more or less distinct segments. The three eastern segments are characterized by upland areas with numerous shallow lakes and...

Measurements made on Casement Glacier during the summers of 1965, 1966, and 1967 revealed time-variations in the horizontal component of the surface velocities. The summer velocities were greater than the “winter” velocities. The magnitude of the summer velocities varied from year to year, but was always greater than the winter velocity. These changes in surface velocity correspond to changes in the basal sliding velocity as measured in an ice tunnel along the margin of the glacier. Discharge and budget measurements were calculated for two sections of the glacier. The mass budget of each section was negative. Englacial velocities were calculated...

This is the fourth annual progress report submitted by Institute of Polar Studies researchers to the National Science Foundation (Grant No. GA-898X) on the geochronology and geochemistry of rocks from the Transantarctic Mountains, Antarctica. The results reported in this report are preliminary in nature.
This volume is the first annual progress report submitted by Institute of Polar Studies researchers and graduate students to the National Science Foundation (Grant No. GA-898X) on the geochronology of the Transantarctic Mountains. As this is the first report submitted, the conclusions embodied in this report are based in many instances on incomplete data and are therefore to be regarded as tentative. This progress report contains eight individual papers.

The ice-free valleys of southern Victoria Land are located in the Transantarctic Mountains west of Ross Island, Antarctica. In these valleys, the average annual temperature is well below the freezing point of water and precipitation is extremely low. Nevertheless, lakes are present and soils have begun to form since deglaciation. These lakes and soils are characterized by high concentrations of salts. The salinity of some lakes, such as Lake Vanda and Don Juan Pond in Wright Valley and Lake Bonney in Taylor Valley, is several times greater than that of sea water. In addition, salts occur as surface efflorescences and...

This volume presents, in tabular form, the results of surface meteorological observations made at the United States Antarctic Research Program facility, Palmer Station, between January 1 and December 31, 1966. These data represent a preliminary report in limited edition, while a detailed analysis for final publication is in progress. The meteorological observation program at Palmer Station was carried out in conjunction with the glaciology program being conducted on the Anvers Island ice cap by a party from the Institute of Polar Studies, The Ohio State University. Observations were made by the glaciology personnel.

During the summer 1964, personnel of The Ohio State University Institute of Polar Studies conducted a field program in the Sukkertoppen Ice Cap area of southwest Greenland. The program included studies of soil and mass wasting in the Tasersiaq area immediately east of the ice cap, and studies of the microclimatology across the eastern edge of the ice cap. The results of this research program are contained in four parts. Part I, by Adolph Kryger, discusses the microclimatological (excluding radiation) results of observations taken at four stations, one at the base of the slope below the eastern edge of the...

The subject of this research is the preparation of photogrammetric maps of the Burroughs Glacier in Alaska, the Dinwoody Glacier in Wyoming, and the Palisade Glacier in California. These maps were compiled in the scale 1 : 5000 with a contour interval of five meters, according to specifications established for the IGY Project 4.11.
This report represents a part of a study being made to measure the surface movement of the Antarctic ice sheet using photogrammetric methods. The area under investigation is between Byrd Station and Mt. Chapman. Markers were placed in this area along a distance of 365 km and their positions were determined by aerial triangulation. One hundred twenty eight models were bridged and the coordinates obtained will be compared with future observations i n order to determine the rate of movement of the ice sheet. This report evaluates the work accomplished in the field, explains the performance of the aerial triangulation,...

A study is being made to measure the surface movement of a part of the Antarctic ice sheet, using aerial strip triangulation with independent geodetic control. After placing 134 photographic markers between Byrd Station and Mt. Chapman, a distance of 365 km, an overlapping strip of aerial photographs was taken. Using Mt. Chapman as the only fixed reference, together with a very limited amount of field work, the positions of the markers will be determined by aerial triangulation. After a certain time interval of one or two year’s another strip of photographs will provide changed marker positions. This preliminary report...

The Antarctic Regional Interactions Meteorology Experiment (RIME) is a basic and applied research program to explore in detail the local and regional atmospheric processes over Antarctica and their interactions with lower latitudes via the Ross Sea sector. RIME will consist of both observational and modeling components; fundamental goals include the study of physical processes in the lower atmosphere over the Ross Sea sector during episodes of extratropical cyclone forcing and simulation of such processes by atmospheric numerical forecast models. This document describes the implementation strategy and timetable for the various observational and modeling components for RIME. It is recognized that this...
