  • Walk-away seismic reflection surveys were conducted in two locations on and to the south of (i.e. on the Solberg Inlet derived meteoric ice shelf unit) the suture zone emanating from the Joerg Peninsula on the Larsen C Ice Shelf, approximately 95 km downflow of the peninsula''s tip. The data were collected as part of NERC Project SOLIS. Funding was provided by NERC Standard Grant ''Present and future stability of Larsen C Ice Shelf'', 2008-2011, NERC Reference NE/E012914/1.

  • In 2016, a series of ice shelf cavity bathymetry point measurements were made across Larsen C Ice Shelf, West Antarctica. The sites were selected to address deficiencies in the coverage provided by existing data sets. A hammer and plate seismic source was used. Seismic reflection data were recorded on 24 receivers at 10 m interval and 30 m offset. Sea bed reflections are observed at all sites. Surface elevation measurements are provided to allow estimation of ice thickness when an ice base reflection is not visible.
