Abstract : During May 1963, snow-movement poles were installed at the former HIRAN sites on the Greenland ice sheet to prevent the loss of these positions through snow accumulation. It is anticipated that the poles will project above the snow surface for approximately 10 years, during which time they will be re-surveyed to determine movement of the ice sheet. HIRAN stations and erection techniques are described. (Author)
