C-511-M: McMurdo LTER – Meteorology/Lakes: Ecosystem ...

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-516-M: ANTarctic Airborne ElectroMagnetics (ANTAEM) -...

In Antarctica, millions of years of freezing have led to the development of hundreds of meters of permafrost. This slow freezing has trapped and concentrated water into local and regional briny aquifers that are many times saltier than seawater. Such unu ...

G-055-M: Landscape evolution in the McMurdo Dry Valleys...

Moisture plays a part in the erosion of rocks, but in the ice-free Dry Valleys region of Antarctica – one of the driest places on the planet – little is known about the rates and causes of rock erosion. To better understand them, researchers will inst ...

Italian Antarctic Programme - PNRA 2016/AZ2.05

This proposal represents a multidisciplinary study focused on dating of the fault movements to provide a temporal evolution of the Cenozoic brittle deformation long the Transantarctic Mountains (TAM) front. This approach is based on geological and structu ...

K042-1819-A: Solid earth parameters in Transantarctic M...

The aim of the project is to collect new gravity data in two carefully chosen transects along the Taylor Valley (from the head of Lake Bonney to the coast, via Lake Hoare and Lake Fryxell), and also the Wright Lower Glacier along Doorly Ridge and across t ...
