    The Astrophysics and Geospace Sciences Program sponsors research areas that either use Antarctica as an observing platform or contribute to an understanding of the role played by the Antarctic upper atmosphere in global environmental processes. The AGO network is the result of years of planning how to use stable, earthbound sites to acquire data on the upper atmosphere and space. The network had to overcome the challenge of operating in the harsh environmental extremes of Antarctica.

    The book “Ice Station” chronicles the creation of Halley VI, a British research station in Antarctica. It’s going to be a sunny, cold summer this December for scientists headed to Antarctica. McMurdo Station, the continent’s bustling metropolis of roughly 1, residents, will be home to researchers hoping to understand more about some of the most exotic phenomena in the universe – neutron stars and black holes. Within this group of researchers is a team from Washington University led by.

      While other research stations have to use fossil fuels to keep station staff warm, fed and hydrated, the Princess Elisabeth station uses % renewable energy supplied by . COVID Resources. Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus.

The present volume consists of seven technical papers sandwiched between an introduction by L. Lanzerotti and C. Park and a final chapter on the early history of upper-atmosphere physics research in Antarctica.

In its original conception the volume contents were limited to the U.S. Antarctic automatic weather station (AWS) program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and to the results flowing from analysis of the collected data. The research has three goals: to understand the region and its ecosystems; to understand its effects on (and responses to) global processes such as climate; and to use the region as a platform to study the upper atmosphere and space.

Antarctica's remoteness and extreme climate make field science more expensive than in most places. Research using Antarctica as a platform Examples: Seismic studies Meteorite collection Aeronomy and upper atmosphere Space physics Astronomy and astrophysics To detect high-energy neutrinos from deep space To probe new window into the Universe Temperature variations (µK) (inflationary model and data) A new m dish radio telescope – to test.

We (the United States) burn JP-8 (kerosene, av gas). This goes for NZ which shares facilities. It's brought in annually via a tanker lead by an ice breaker.

I think they try to keep a year supply in McMurdo. It's either flown or carted overlan. Scientific opportunities in Antarctica center on terrestrial and marine biology, medical research, meteorology, glaciology, the earth sciences, the ocean sciences, atmospheric physics, and astronomy.

Eligibility generally is limited to U.S. scientists with advanced degrees, who initiate proposals that are submitted by their employing organizations. National Academy of Sciences.

A manual designed specifically for individuals who will be working in remote locations in Antarctica. It includes information such as basic field party preparation, field safety training, snow shelters, glacier travel, crevasse rescue, Antarctic navigation, search and rescue, and altitude acclimatization.

Antarctica boasts one of the world's harshest environments. Since the earliest expeditions, a major challenge has been to characterize the surface meteorology around the continent.

The AWS project was started in by UW-Madison atmospheric sciences Professor Charles R. Stearns.Official research stations have been set up here for over 50 years, with more being built all of the time.

Some scientists say that Antarctica holds the answers to many scientific questions.
