Abstract

The Natural Variability Sub-program of the Co-operative Research Centre for Antarctic and Southern Ocean Environments aims to study past environmental change by examining ice core and sedimentary records in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. As the first stage in marine sedimentological studies, Voyage 7 of the Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions (ANARE) 1992/1993 shipping season included a geoscience program comprising echo sounder traverses, gravity coring and grab sampling of the Antarctic continental shelf and slope on the Mac. Robertson Shelf and in Prydz Bay. This record describes the preliminary results of the voyage and presents location information for core and grab samples and preliminary descriptions of grab samples and lists of subsamples taken by associated research programs.
