Victoria University Antarctic Research Expedition Science and Logistics Reports 1991-92: VUWAE 36

Site 3

Site 3.

This site is also on the northern side of the tongue (708 495. m N, 279 479.9 m E) about 1.9 km east of site 1. The tongue is also grounded here but at a depth of 200m. The seafloor is similar to site 1 with mud drapes on many of the boulders, although in general there are less large boulders observed. A strong trough fabric was observed on the sea floor showing that coupling with the glacier and lodgement processes occur here also. The basal debris layer at this site had thinned to about 10 m thick compared to site 2.
