McMurdo Station GPS Survey System

UNAVCO operates a GPS survey system at McMurdo Station, Antarctica, in support of National Science Foundation sponsored research. The system provides centimeter level differential corrections to properly equipped users in the vicinity of McMurdo. The equipment may be used for post-processed static and kinematic surveys, as well as real-time (RTK) surveys, simplifying many GPS survey tasks that would otherwise require time consuming collection and post-processing of data. The base station operates continuously, while RTK brodcasts and roving equipment are available during the austral summer season between WINFLY and late February. The system is not compatible with hand-held GPS navigation receivers.
