Loewe, Fritz (1963-02)
During 1915-1917 the Ross Sea Party of the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition wintered in McMurdo Sound and sledged across the Ross Ice Shelf to the foot of the Beardmore Glacier. The meteorological observations made ...
Glacial Geology of Ohio Range, Central Horlick Mountains, Antarctica
Mercer, John H. (1963-04)
Local glaciers in the Ohio Range of the Central Horlick Mountains have associated ice-cored moraines indicating ice shrinkage, but there is considerable difference in the regime from one glacier to another. The older ...
Slope Movement, Neotoma Valley, Southern Ohio
Everett, K. R. (1963-01)
Fifty-three pits were dug along a transect of Neotoma Valley so as to sample both the southwest-facing and northeast-facing slopes. Each pit was dug to a depth of 59 cm and samples were taken from the 0-, 15-, 30-, and 59- ...
Photogrammetric Measurement of Ice Movement for Glaciological Studies of the Byrd Glacier, Antarctic Region
Adler, Ron K. H. (1963-02)
The subject of this research is the measurement of ice movement on the Byrd Glacier in the Antarctic using photogrammetric methods. The work was performed with very limited geodetic control available.

Goldthwait, R.P. (1963-09)
During the summer of 1963, the Ohio State University’s Institute of Polar Studies with the Arctic Institute of North America conducted detailed scientific studies in the western part of the Tasersiaq area of southwestern ...
Glaciological Studies on the McMurdo-South Pole Traverse, 1960-1961
Giovinetto, Mario B. (1963-01)
Studies of snow stratigraphy indicate that the mass accumulation between Victoria Land Plateau (78° 02' S, 154° 22' E) and the South Pole is approximately 4.5 g.cm-2yr-1 (±20%), which is one-half the amount determined ...
The Use of Photogrammetric Methods to Investigate Surface Movement of the Antarctic Ice Sheet.
Forrest, Robert B. (1963-08)
A study is being made to measure the surface movement of a part of the Antarctic ice sheet, using aerial strip triangulation with independent geodetic control. After placing 134 photographic markers between Byrd Station ...
