Immediate report on the Victoria University of Wellington Antarctic Expedition 1959-60: VUWAE 3
It is desired to extend the profile made by Dr. Bull last year westwards to the plateau, mainly to ascertain whether or not there exists the rock step. thought to be the ultimate cause of the existence of the Dry Valley area. A further profile in the Victoria Valley would be useful and extensions north and south of this profile would also be made.
Determinations of ice thickness on one selected glacier, probably the Upper Victoria, would be made, and, if conditions permitted, a profile of Lake Vida would be obtained.
