LARISSA

Sjogren Glacier Area

Two images at right: looking north and west, respectively, into the Sjogren Glacier basin. Large nunataks surround middle and lower glacier.

One of these nunataks appears in this photograph from a 2003 Science article by Pedro Skvarca:

The low-angle bench at left in this image is an ideal location to trap erratics that can be exposure-dated.

 

 

Overflying the Detroit Plateau, looking down (E) into the upper Sjogren Glacier basin. Closer view of nunataks surrounding upper glacier.

Larsen Inlet - Sjobral Peninsula - Edgeworth Glacier area

Overflying NE side of Sjobral Peninsula, looking N into glaciers feeding Larsen Inlet. Several low-angle nunataks in center of glacier. Nunataks surrounding glacier appear steep.

Overflying SW side of Sjobral Peninsula, looking N into Edgeworth Glacier. Once again, low-angle nunataks in center of glacier are promising.

Cape Framnes

Very small outcrops at Cape Framnes. Largely snow-covered. Not highly promising for exposure dating; however, can probably be visited by small boat. Possible GPS site.

Cape Longing

Small outcrops at Cape Longing. Largely snow-covered. Worth a look for erratics that could be exposure dated. Can probably be visited by small boat. Possible GPS site.

Robertson Island - Seal Nunataks

Overflying Robertson Island, looking NW over Seal Nunataks. Former Larsen A ice shelf to R; former Larsen B ice shelf to L. Matienzo station and airstrip are near large nunatak at center of image. These nunataks are probablk worth a look for erratics that could be exposure dated; however, the significance of the ages would be unclear.
