New Zealand Geological Survey Antarctic Expedition

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The New Zealand Geological Survey Antarctic Expedition (NZGSAE, German: New Zealand Geological Geodetic Antarctic Expedition ) describes a series of New Zealand research campaigns from the late 1950s to the late 1960s in Antarctica . These explorations undertaken in the Ross Dependency claimed by New Zealand served primarily for geological research and geodetic surveying, which also led to the naming of numerous geographical objects. These include, for example, the Lennox-King Glacier and the Supporters Range south of the Ross Ice Shelf or the Mountaineer Range and the Freyberg Mountains in Viktorialand .
