Full description

The dataset comprise tip resistance and sleeve friction data from almost 100 CPTs conducted in the vicinity of Halley over the period January-February 2009.  Tests were in firn, typically to depths of 5 metres with one test to 10 metres. 

Format:  The data are in a proprietary format produced by the data gathering software, GOnsite! developed by A. P. Van den burg. Files can be exported in .csv or similar formats for manipulation in MS Excel or similar.

Testing was conducted using a bespoke CPT rig mounted behind and powered by British Antarctic Survey tractors.

Notes

Support for the research was provided by British Antarctic Survey and equipment was provided by Lankelma (UK) and Gardline Geosciences (UK).
