Description

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Antarctic Research Series, Volume 16.

This volume of the Antarctic Research Series represents an attempt to compile in one publication the remaining results of the extensive U.S. oversnow traverses in Antarctica between 1957 and 1967. Although this attempt was not completely successful, in that some traverse results still remain to be published, I think that this volume will give the reader a fair sample of the methodology and the great effort that was required to wrest from the huge continent a few fundamental data. From the beginning of 1957, the traverses, though including an assortment of observations, had two principal objectives: measurement of the thickness of the ice and measurement of the annual accumulation of snow. Here the reader will find the old and new methods of approaching both objectives.
