B-235-M: Remote characterization of microbial mats in T...

Microbial mats are pervasive throughout the McMurdo Dry Valleys. Recent technological advances in remote sensing allow detailed characterization of unique spectral signatures associated with microbial mats at higher spatial resolution than before. These a ...

B-320-M: Stochasticity and cryoconite community assembl...

Cryoconite is a combination of dust and microbial material that can absorb solar radiation and cause localized melting when deposited on glacial surfaces. These melt areas, called cryoconite holes, become hosts to ice-bound microbe communities. Low temper ...

C-505-M: McMurdo LTER – Limnology: Ecosystem response...

Initially funded in 1980, the U.S. Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) network is a collaborative effort of more than 1,800 scientists and students. The McMurdo LTER program is a multi-disciplinary aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems study in the McMurdo ...

C-506-M: McMurdo LTER – Streams/Geochemistry: Ecosys...

Initially funded in 1980, the U.S. LTER network is a collaborative effort of more than 1,800 scientists and students. The McMurdo LTER program is a multi-disciplinary aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems study in the McMurdo Dry Valleys. It is one of 26 LTE ...

Italian Antarctic Programme - PNRA 2016/AZ1.13

How Antarctic organisms will respond to climate change is one of the main issue of SCAR and this project is designed to achieve a significant improvement of the knowledge of the molecular mechanisms involved in the acclimatory adaptation during exposure a ...

Italian Antarctic Programme - PNRA 2016/AZ1.16 AMunDsEN

In the Antarctic McMurdo Dry Valleys, the best Martian analogue on Earth, the endolithic microbial communities represent the predominant life-form. Endolithic life is a border adaptation to the environmental constrains supplying the last chance of surviva ...

K020-1819-A: Evidence Based Risk Assessment of Dry Vall...

This research aims to deliver objective-based planning and management tools for the McMurdo Dry valleys of Antarctica (MDV). The project’s foundations will be a comprehensive understanding of the resilience and sensitivity of MDV habitats to human impac ...

K080-1819-B: Resilience in Antarctic biota and ecosyste...

This proposal represents an integrated, cross-disciplinary investigation of the resilience of Antarctic ecosystems from terrestrial, through inland aquatic, to near-shore marine habitats. The proposal aims to merge observations on environment, organisms, ...
