Abstract

During the 2008-09 Antarctic summer, Geoscience Australia surveyors undertook fieldwork at the Davis, Casey, Mawson and Macquarie Island research stations, as well as several remote sites in Eastern Antarctica. At each of the research stations, upgrades and local deformation monitoring surveys were performed at the continuously operating reference stations, which form part of the Australian Antarctic GNSS Network and the Australian Regional GNSS Network. Remote GPS sites in the Grove Mountains, Bunger Hills and Wilson Bluff were visited for equipment upgrades and data retrieval. Additional surveys were undertaken which focussed on enhancing the spatial infrastructure around the Larsemann Hills, Rauer Group, Vestfold Hills and Davis station. Support was also provided to a number of different Australian Antarctic Division projects and university research groups.
