The data presented in this volume were collected on the Ross Ice Shelf Traverse of 1957-1958 by Walter W. Boyd, Jr. The large number of observations for each pit precluded presentation on the scale regularly used in this series of publications. In this report each diagram represents a 3- meter pit. It should also be noted that both the rammsonde and temperature scales have been altered from those ordinarily used. The stratigraphic data sheet which accompanies most of the pits gives the dominant grain sizes of each stratum and the ratio of relative abundance of these grain sizes. Analysis of the material presented in this volume will define the average snow accumulation on the Ross Ice Shelf.
