In 1968 the Australian Antarctic Division had a team of four people spend just over a year on the Amery Ice Shelf, undertaking a range of studies including ice velocity determination (horizontal and vertical), ice thickness and surface profile measurements, snow accumulation studies, investigation of temperature, density and crystal structure of the ice, continuous measurements of wind velocities, ... air and snow temperatures, air pressure, humidity, and radiation.
Many journals were kept during the traverse, detailing general daily activities carried out, but also including assorted measurements and observations that weren't specifically recorded in stand-alone logs.
All logbooks have been archived at the Australian Antarctic Division.
