Antarctic Dry Valley Drilling Project: Report on Seminar 2



An interdisciplinary science seminar on the Japanese, New Zealand, and American sponsored Dry Valley Drilling Project (DVDP) was hosted by the Antarctic Research Center and the Geology Department of Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, January 13–15, 1976.

The seminar, like the first one held in Seattle in May 1974, was designed to be a forum for scientists, administrators, and support personnel to report on achievements of the project to date and to consider future drilling in Antarctica. Seventy- one people attended the conference.
