World Data Center A, Glaciology, However, a basic difference exists between the Antarctic and Arctic regions in that the Southern Hemisphere — and Antarctica — during the current phase of year period of cyclic variation of the line of apsides is at perihelion during its summer season (January) rather than at aphelion (July) as is the Northern Hemisphere, and is.

International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) ExpeditionIceberg Alley and Subantarctic Ice and Ocean Dynamics, investigated the long-term climate history of Antarctica, seeking to understand how polar ice sheets responded to changes in insolation and atmospheric CO2 in the past and how ice sheet evolution influenced global sea level and vice by: 2.

This paper reports an analysis of Seasat altimeter observations of an extremely flat area on the surface of the East Antarctic ice sheet, approximately 30 km in extent, centred at °S °E and close to the edge of the sub-glacial Astrolabe Basin.

Antarctica - Antarctica - Economic resources: The search for economic resources led to the first sustained human interaction in Antarctica.

Most early Antarctic expeditions through the 19th century had either direct or indirect economic incentives. For some expeditions, the search for new trading routes was the objective; for others, the objective was the opening of new fur-sealing grounds or.

The U.S. Antarctic Program has equipped R/V Nathaniel B. Palmer with a modern system that uses sound beams to image the bottom from directly below the ship out to an angle of 60° to each side.

The resultant swath is more than three times wider than the water depth. which wants to map the northern hemisphere including the Arctic. Next. As such, CReSIS scientists also collaborate extensively with others funded by the Antarctic Glaciology program.

Ice cores from Antarctica are important for determining whether the rapid climate changes recorded in Northern Hemisphere ice cores, such as those obtained from Summit, Greenland, in the Greenland Ice Sheet Project II (GISP2), are.

The Antarctic Glaciology Program also supports much of the land-based glacial geology undertaken by the U.S. Antarctic Program, especially more geologically recent events during the last 3 million years (between the Pliocene and Recent epochs).

His research interests include glaciology and quaternary science, the study and exploration of Antarctic subglacial lakes, and Antarctic climate evolution, particularly using geophysical data and modelling to understand past changes to the ice sheet.

He has published over articles and book chapters. Today, the IceCube Collaboration announces a new observation of high-energy neutrinos that originated beyond our solar system. This study, which looked for neutrinos coming from the Northern Hemisphere, confirms their cosmic origin as well as the presence of extragalactic neutrinos and the.

Like a wandering frozen. Processing and Filtering. The raw data rates collected by the IceCube detector far exceed our daily satellite bandwidth allocations. To allow physics analysis to proceed as quickly as possible, the first level of reconstruction and event filtering is done in near real time at the South Pole station.

Antarctica is a continent of approximat, sq km completely in the Southern Hemisphere. In addition, part of Antarctica is also in the eastern hemisphere, and the rest of it is also in.

The cryosphere (from the Greek κρύος kryos, "cold", "frost" or "ice" and σφαῖρα sphaira, "globe, ball") is an all-encompassing term for those portions of Earth's surface where water is in solid form, including sea ice, lake ice, river ice, snow cover, glaciers, ice caps, ice sheets, and frozen ground (which includes permafrost).Thus, there is a wide overlap with the hydrosphere.

"Preliminary Reports of the Antarctic and Northern Hemisphere Glaciology Pro-grams," IGY Glaciological Report Series Ntumber i, has been issued by IGY World Data Center A: Glaciology, at the American Geographical Society.

This volume is one of a series of IGY reports being prepared by the various disciplines, and the first report to be. The first observation of a cosmic neutrino flux inalso observed later in by an independent measurement using throughgoing muons from the Northern Hemisphere, has been recognized as a breakthrough in neutrino astronomy.

The IceCube Collaboration is now accumulating more statistics in the search for the sources of very high energy neutrinos, but also to learn more.

Earth’s climate underwent a major transition from the warmth of the late Pliocene, when global surface temperatures were ~2° to 3°C higher than today, to extensive Northern Hemisphere glaciation (NHG) ~ million years ago (Ma). We show that North Pacific deep waters were substantially colder (4°C) and probably fresher than the North Atlantic Deep Water before the.

that occurred in and is of particular value to. According to this study, the gains in ice from increased precipitation in the continent's interior, particularly across the East Antarctic Ice Sheet, is enough to offset the melting occurring in the West Antarctic and Antarctic Peninsula.
