Abstract
The Ross Ice Shelf Project (RISP) began in 1973, and lasted six field seasons. One of the primary goals for RISP was to drill a hole through the Ross Ice Shelf in order to study the ice, the ocean, and the ocean floor beneath the ice shelf. In late November 1974, during the second field season, the camp at J-9 (82.375S, 168.626W) was established, and this site was chosen for future deep core drilling. This datset records ice shelf and sub-ice shelf temperature profiles taken between 1974 and 1977 at the J9 drill site in The Ross Ice Shelf.
