Glaciology of the Antarctic Peninsula Program 1974


Notes

Maps: Stations 1-54, Martin and Peel, 1978, p. 313. Stations 55-60, Peel and Clausen, 1982, p. 45. Stations 61-90, Potter et al., 1984, p. 162.

Station Information: Stations 1-54, Martin and Peel, 1978, p. 312. Stations 55-60, Peel and Clausen, 1982, p. 46. Stations 61-90, Potter et al., 1984, p. 168.

Temperature and Depth: Stations 1-54, Martin and Peel, 1978, p. 312. Stations 55-60, Peel and Clausen, 1982, p. 46. Stations 61-90, Potter et al., 1984, p. 168. Temperature reported in Celsius, depth is in meters. Ten-meter holes were drilled at each station using a heavily lagged mercury-iridium thermometer (+ or -0.1C). Temperature was recorded after the thermometer had been in position overnight. (Peel, 1976, p.2)

Accumulation: Peel and Clausen, 1982, p. 46. Potter et al., 1984, p. 168. Discussion on accumulation values can be found in Peel, 1976, p. 6.

* Flag: Represents how temperature was derived. Values reported as (S) represent a single point measurement. This measurement has not been corrected for short term thermal decay or annual thermal cycle.
