Group: Summary

   From November 2004 to March 2005, on the Ross Ice Shelf, Antarctica, an 
   automated "web cam" was operated on the southward facing lip of a large 
   ice-shelf rift to produce a photographic record of processes active in 
   ice-shelf rift systems. Four times each day, the camera took a photograph in 
   four repeating directions.
