Station Report
Operational Information - National Expeditions - Stations
Name: Casey
Type: Wintering
Location:
Site Name: Casey   Lat: 66°16´54´´S   Long: 110°31´39´´E  
Maximum Population: 88
Medical Facilities: Doctor and surgery available.
Remarks / Description: Casey is on the west coast of Law Dome, an almost circular ice cap 200 km in diameter rising to a height of 1395 m, 110 km inland. The regularly traversed routes on Law Dome are mostly crevasse-free, the exceptions being the steep regions of the coast eat of Cape Folger; the Peterson Glacier; the inflow into the Vanderford Glacier; and the eastern coast of Sparkes Bay at the end of the Loken Moraine. In summer, melt streams and soft snow in the low areas between Loken Moraine and the coast often form hazards for vehicles. Beyond the moraine the surface is comparatively smooth and featureless, with patchy blue ice and snow for several kilometres, gradually changing to neve upon which small to medium sastrugi are encountered. At the southern (inland) edge of the Law Dome ice cape, the elevation drops to 600 m in a wide valley extending from the Totten Glacier to the Vanderford Glacier. South of this valley the plateau continues to rise gradually, reaching an altitude of some 3650 m as the Russian station Vostok is approached. It is a featureless plateau and navigational competence is essential. Although the average wind speed at Casey is 30 km/h, the weather can be deceptively calm. When the wind direction turns to the east, blizzards can set in with very little warning and rapidly reach wind speeds in excess of 150 km/h. These winds can last for several days. occur at any time of the year and can make travel hazardous. Keep a constant watch to the east; when the horizon becomes fuzzy you have less than 30 minutes to take shelter before a blow arrives. The direction of strong winds over the Law Dome area is usually easterly providing a constant sastrugi direction which is often an aid to navigation in bad weather. The inland plateau is characterised by frequent, persistent strong wind and drift, especially during winter months. Temperatures recorded in the station area range from +9.2°C (January) to -41°C (July). (construction commenced 1978)
Name: Davis
Type: Wintering
Location:
Site Name: Davis   Lat: 68°34´36´´S   Long: 77°58´03´´E  
Maximum Population: 91
Medical Facilities: Doctor and surgery available.
Remarks / Description: Davis is on the edge of the Vestfold Hills, a triangular ice-free area approximately 400 km2 located on the coast of Princess Elizabeth Land. The hills are of low relief (maximum height 158 m) and are broken by valleys and penetrated deeply by fjords and lakes. They are bounded on two sides by the ice plateau and the Sorsdal Glacier. Numerous islands fringe the coast around Davis, up to 5 km offshore. Davis mean temperatures range from +2.9°C in January to -20.4°C in August, with recorded extremes of +13°C and -40°C. Long periods of relatively calm, fine conditions occur throughout the year. Winds are generally light; the yearly average is around 20 km/h. Violent winds and blizzards can commence with little warning, and gusts over 200 km/h have been recorded. At Platcha hut and other areas near the continental ice sheet, gale force (katabatic) winds regularly occur, even in otherwise fine weather. The effect diminishes significantly as distances of 5 km or more inland on the ice sheet are reached. Snow fall averages 78 mm/year, with the greater proportion of annual accumulation resulting from wind blown drift. Apart from several permanent ice banks, the hills are virtually snow free in summer and lightly covered in winter.
Name: Mawson
Type: Wintering
Location:
Site Name: Mawson   Lat: 67°36´10´´S   Long: 62°52´26´´E  
Maximum Population: 41
Medical Facilities: Doctor and surgery available.
Remarks / Description: Mawson Station is located on an isolated outcrop of rock on the coast, at the edge of the Antarctic plateau in Mac.Robertson Land. The plateau surface in the coastal region is mostly blue ice occasionally covered by light snow in winter and spring. The snow is deepest in valleys or on steep leeward slopes, while the higher ridges are invariably swept clear. Heavy melting occurs during summer and melt-water collects in well-defined streams and lakes. Although not necessarily deep they are a hazard to travellers, especially those in fast-moving transport. Further inland from the coast the surface is mainly snow or white ice with occasional blue ice patches. The mean annual windspeed at Mawson is almost 40 km/h although gusts measure well above 180 km/h. Sixteen kilometres inland the wind is much stronger. The winds usually increase after sunset and fall off around midday. Winds are predominantly south-easterly moving towards the west with the onset of bad weather. Mawson experiences long periods of fine weather broken at intervals by periods of high wind and heavy drifting snow. Temperatures range from 10°C to -36°C.
Name: Beaver Lake
Type: Summer
Location:
Site Name: Beaver Lake   Lat: 70°47´34´´S   Long: 68°17´43´´E  
Maximum Population: 10
Medical Facilities: Comprehensive field medical kit only available during summer occupation.
Remarks / Description: Beaver Lake: established January 1995. Used to support Northern Prince Charles Mountains and Amery Ice Shelf operations. The Prince Charles Mountains (PCMs) includes all the mountain areas around by the Lambert Glacier and the Amery ice Shelf, in Mac. Robertson Land. There are numerous mountain ranges and nunataks varying between 1000 m and 3000 m in height. Beaver Lake Base is on the western side of Beaver Lake by the northern shore of Pagadroma George and was established in 1995. The continental ice sheet is highest in the west and east and falls into the trough of the Lambert. The topography within the northern region is variable. The Aramis and Porthos Ranges consist of sharp peaks, with sheer rock faces and large wind scours. In the area of the Beaver Lake and Mawson Escarpment there are mainly rounded mountains with rubble surfaces.

Maximum Population: 8
Medical Facilities: Comprehensive field medical kit available during summer occupation for emergency use.
Remarks / Description: Approximately 440 km west of Casey and 85 km inland from the Shackleton Ice Shelf in the Bunger Hills region, Wilkes Land. Winds are generally easterly and can be particularly strong on the eastern side of the hills. The Denman and Scott Glaciers both generate strong katabatic winds due to the sharpness of their final descent to the coastal shelf ice. Permanent sea ice exists in many areas. However, the ice in tidal passages in the Thomas and Charnockite Island areas and in the north near the Highjump Archipelago are particularly liable to break up in late January and February. An area of permanent sea ice, 4000 m long and 2 m thick, suitable as a runway for large aircraft, can be found on the western side of the Bunger Hills beside Edgeworth David. A glacier blue ice runway area is located to the south at Grace Rocks on the Apfel Glacier. Established 1986.

Remarks / Description: In 2005 a 10 year Memorandum of Understanding was signed by Australia and Romania for joint use of this base. Used in summer by field personnel in support of scientists studying the formation of the Larsemanns and the lakes there. The Larsemann Hills are an ice-free area 110 km southwest of Davis in Princess Elizabeth Land. The hills are bounded in the east by the Dalk Glacier and in the west by the Polararboken Glacier. Numerous lakes and fjords and peninsulas dominate the area. Due to its proximity to the plateau, the area is subject to katabatic winds early in the day but has reliably fine afternoon weather. Law Base is walking distance to the Chinese station of Zhongshan and the Russian station of Progress. Australia has worked with China and the Russian Federation to draft a management plan, which would declare the region an ASMA.

Remaining Equipment or Facilities: S2 consisted of a 'Jamesway' hut, generator, storage, and snow laboratory all dug in the snow, joined with a roofed trench and then covered over with snow, and a shaft which they dug down into the ice, 36m deep. Over the years the snow has covered it all. But each year expeditioners returned and dug it out to do more experiments and take more ice samples. When they finally closed the site (around 1966) they were living in an underground ice cave/tunnel, the hut and all, buried. Now there is a 15m deep shaft to the original dwelling which consists of a tunnel joining the hut and the 36m shaft.
