Abstract:A glaciological survey was carried out in Feb.-Mar., 1977, in an unexplored area east of Pionerskaya Station. The 670 km long route extended in the C-dome direction from the Station to the point 73S-111E, in the Antarctic Slope zone, the altitude varying from 2750 to 3000 m. Along the route 335 snow stakes were placed 2 km apart. At each point the length of the stake above the snow surface and snow cover hardness were measured. Snow samples were taken from the surface every 26 km of the way for oxygen-isotope analyses. Snow survey polygons with holes 320, 350 and 575 cm deep located at their centers were established at the 120th, 320th and 670th km. Snow temperature, density, hardness and stratification were studied in the holes and snow samples collected. Dimensions and forms of surface microrelief were studied along the whole route. Barometric leveling, gravity and magnetic measurements were made at the snow stakes and on polygons.
