Brief description

Field Program as Planned
- Survey for coordination of the survey control network on ITRF 2000.
- Checking the accuracy of the recently completed Macquarie Island topographic map.
- Correction of a known map contour anomaly on Wireless Hill.
- Mapping of new structures in the ANARE station area.
- Maintenance of existing survey control marks
- Tide gauge levelling - assistance to Bob Twilley of Geosciences Australia.
- Sea level calibration of the tide gauge situated adjacent to the ANARE station.

Field Program as Implemented

All field survey was carried out using Lieca 530 dual frequency GPS; in the static mode for control and post processed kinematic for mapping.
