(1) McMurdo Volcanoes Project: To continue mapping and sampling of the McMurdo Volcanics mainly at previously unvisited localities in the McMurdo Sound area. The programme includes working in with the Dry Valley Drilling Project’s deep drilling at McMurdo Station.
(2) Salts Project: To plot the distribution and to establish the physical and chemical forms of salts accumulating in the ice-free areas of South Victoria Land and to then determine their origin and mechanism of migration.
(3) Shapeless Mountain Project: To complete a programme of paleomagnetic sampling of previously dated flows in the McMurdo Volcanics| and to use paleomagnetic measurements toe determine the temperature of emplacement of dykes and flows of Mawson Volcanobreccia in the Shapeless Mountain area.
(4) Lake Vanda Project: To check the physical limnology of Lake Vanda to compare the measurements made by VUWAE 12, five years ago, and to measure profiles of current velocities.
