Drill hole measurements of fast ice and sub-ice platelet layer thickness, and snow depth in McMurdo Sound - November 2013


Sea ice thickness and sub-ice platelet layer thickness under fast ice were measured at regular intervals at two North-South oriented profiles and four east-west oriented profiles in McMurdo Sound, Antarctica in November 2013. Holes were drilled at regular intervals into sea ice at measurement sites about 10 km apart. The thickness was measured using measurement tapes. Snow depth on sea ice was also measured at all sites.
