B 506 M: McMurdo LTER Streams

The Site Review is currently planned for 06−10 Jan, 2014 and will involve up to five non−LTER personnel. Logistically, the NSF will request the resources required for this event external of the MCMLTER SIPs. Currently, there is one over−night stay a ...

C 528 M: MIDGE: Minimally Invasive Direct Glacial Explo...

The MIDGE project aims to determine the mechanism of brine release at Blood Falls, evaluate changes in the geochemistry and the microbial community within the englacial conduit and assess if Blood Falls waters have a distinct impact on the thermal and str ...

G 054: West Antarctic Ice Sheet stability, alpine glaci...

The PIs propose to complement the ANDRILL marine record with a terrestrial project that will provide chronological control for past fluctuations of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) and alpine glaciers in McMurdo Sound. The project will develop high− ...

G 078 M: Dry Valleys Seismic Project

The Dry Valleys seismic project monitors regional and global seismicity. The Dry Valley Stations are part of the Air Force Technical Applications Center’s (AFTAC) southern network which accumulates near−real−time data from nine locations in the sout ...

G 496 M: Life in a Volcanic Landscape: Early Jurassic P...

This project will examine early Jurassic floras and paleoenvironments in southern Victoria Land, using sedimentology, stratigraphy, geochemistry, and paleobotany.

K123: Environmental Domains Classification for the Ross...

The overall goal of our research is the development of an environmental classification specific for the Ross Sea region using environmental domains analysis (RSR EDA). We will fill key data gaps needed to deliver the RSR EDA, by: producing a soil map of t ...

LTER Site Review

This project is the “streams” component of the MCM LTER. Researchers operate a network of 18 stream flow gages, collect water quality samples from over 30 streams, and make hydrologic measurements.
