Here, the Pine Island ice stream extended to the continental shelf edge and delivered water-saturated sediments generating turbidity currents that formed gully-channel systems on the uppermost continental slope (Dowdeswell et al., a). This implies that the Pine Island Glacier extended more than km from its present position during by: Facility: Polar Continental Shelf Project, Resolute Bay, NT This research station, run by the Polar Continental Shelf Project, provides modern accommodation facilities for up to 80 people.
