Immediate report on the Victoria University of Wellington Antarctic Expedition 1959-60: VUWAE 3
Restricted areas of soil which occurs within the region were sampled and profiles were examined. Generally they show a cemented topsoil, with a dry friable subsoil above the permafrost level. In Balham Valley red, green, and mottled soils were found. Specimens await further examination and some data will probably be handed over to the Soil Bureau, D.S.I.R.
