The Amery Ice Shelf-Lambert Glacier ice drainage system drains about 22% of the East Antarctic Ice Sheet (EAIS); therfore, Lambert Glacier responds to fluctuations in the EAIS. It is the objective of this chapter to investigate which glacial episodes throughout late Neogene time produced a major advance and what paleoenvironmental conditions existed when the major advance occurred. The best location to find answers to these questions is in the trough mouth fan, which received siliciclastic sediment from the ice front when the shelf eroded during major ice advances and depositied hemispelagic material during interglacials and smaller glaciations. Site 1167 was located in the middle of the Prydz Channel Fan with the intent of drilling through a section that was reasonably complete without being so close to the shelf edge that it would have been affected by large-scale sluping. Models of trough mouth fan sedimentation suggest that thick siliciclastic units should correspond to peaks in Antarctic ice volume, wheras periods of reduced ice volume should be represented by hemipelagic sediments.
