About The Product

Published through the yankee Geophysical Union as a part of the Antarctic learn Series.

This quantity of the Antarctic learn sequence represents an try and bring together in a single ebook the remainder result of the wide U.S. oversnow traverses in Antarctica among 1957 and 1967. even though this try used to be now not thoroughly winning, in that a few traverse effects nonetheless stay to be released, i feel that this quantity will supply the reader a good pattern of the technique and the nice attempt that was once required to wrest from the large continent a number of primary info. From the start of 1957, the traverses, even though together with an collection of observations, had valuable goals: dimension of the thickness of the ice and dimension of the once a year accumulation of snow. right here the reader will locate the outdated and new equipment of imminent either pursuits.
