C 504 M: McMurdo LTER Glaciers: Increased Connectivity ...

This project is the “glaciers" component of the MCM LTER. Research objectives include: 1) continue measurements of physical properties 2) data collection and analysis supporting development and use of a landscape scale numerical model of energy and m ...

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 084 M: Cryptic Hydrology of the McMurdo Dry Valleys: ...

This project will quantify the contribution of water tracks to water, solute, and basic carbon cycling on Antarctic hillslopes. Researchers aim to answer several questions about water tracks in Taylor Valley: (1) how much water flows through water tracks ...

K001B: Neogene Terrestrial Climate Reconstructions

The overall goal of this work is to understand the retreat of Antarctic ice sheets during the last deglaciation (20,000 years ago to present). During this period the East and West Antarctic Ice Sheets receded from advanced positions at the continental she ...

K065: Determining Antarctica’s terrestrial climate hi...

"Climate models predict that past warming resulted in melting of Antarctic ice. In order to predict future impacts of warming, we are compelled to ask: How much warming and how much melting? Ice cores cannot answer these questions, as they do not sample f ...
