Group: Summary

   This data set contains data on the physical flow characteristics, mass 
   balance, sub-glacial topography, and recent fluctuations of the Heard Island 
   glacier. The data were collected for The Antarctic Science Advisory Committee 
   (ASAC) project 2363, a continuation of ASAC project 1158. A full report of the 
   data collected and the work completed are available for download with the data.

   The data were collected by the Heard Island glaciology team during the 2003-04 
   Australian Antarctic Division expedition, as well as some data from the 
   previous expedition in November 2000.
