McGregor, P.M., 1953. Report on the sounding of Prion Lake, Macquarie Island, March 1953. Record  1953/110. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

Prion Lake on the plateau of Macquarie Island, is believed to be a result of the action of an ice-sheet moving over the surface of the land. It should, by the shape of its basin, indicate the direction of movement of the ice-sheet in this region. Elsewhere on the island there are several indications that the general movement was from the south-south-west but it has been suggested that near Prion Lake the movement was nearly at right angles to this. More recently this has been doubted and it was felt necessary to determine the shape of the lake's basin by soundings.
