Abstract

This report outlines the field geophysical work carried out in the vicinity of Wilkes Base (Lat. 660 15' 8, Long. 1100 31' E), Australian Antarctic Territory, during the Australian National Antarctic Research Expedition of 1965-66. The work can be broadly divided into four parts. 1. An autumn traverse where seismic reflection stations were established every 10 miles around a triangle with corners at Cape Folger, the Dome Centre and Cape Poinsett. 2. A mid winter traverse to the inland glaciology station S-2 for a programme of seismic ice velocity studies. 3. A spring traverse where a rectangular grid network of seismic, gravity, and elevation stations were installed in a region between S-2 and 80 miles south of S-2. 4. Two attempts at recording reflections off the Mohorovicic discontinuity shot in the vicinity of Wilkes.
