Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition (JARE) 15 1974-1975


Map: Satow, 1977, p. 183.

Station Information: Shimizu, 1972, p. 17-37. Satow, 1977, p. 9-13. Latitude and Longitude reported in decimal degrees. Elevation and depth reported in meters.

Temperature and Depth: Satow, 1977, p. 60. Temperature reported in Celsius, depth is in meters. "Observing holes were drilled with either a steam-drill or a SIPRE type core auger. The measurement of 10 m snow temperature must be done at least 10 hours after drilling the hole with a steam-drill." Temperatures in parentheses were taken in a hole bored with a steam-operated drill. (Satow, 1977, p. 59)

Density: Density reported in g/cm3.
Depth values for stations where density measured is different than 10 m:

Station Depth(in meters)
S122 9.2
Z30 9.4
W46 9.94
Y'210 9.66
I235 8.98
I355 8.64
J225 9.81

* 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.

** Average Density for 0-2 m. Satow, 1977, p.95-108.

*** Density at 10 m (unless listed above). Satow, 1977, p. 95-108.
