Aurora Subglacial Basin
Aurora Subglacial Basin is a large subglacial basin of Wilkes Land to the west of Dome Charlie and trending northwest toward the coast in the vicinity of Shackleton Ice Shelf. The basin was delineated by the SPRI-NSF-TUD airborne radio echo sounding program, 1967–79, and named after Aurora, the ship of the Australasian Antarctic Expedition, 1911–14, led by Douglas Mawson.
