Projects


  • Lake Vostok Workshop
    The goal of the workshop was to stimulate discussion within the U.S. science community on Lake Vostok, specifically addressing the question: “Is Lake Vostok a natural curiosity or an opportunity for uniquely posed interdisciplinary scientific programs?” The workshop was designed to outline an interdisciplinary science plan for studies of the lake.

  • ADGRAV - Antarctic Digital Gravity Synthesis 
    This project developed an on-line Antarctic gravity database which facilitated access to improved high resolution satellite gravity models, in conjunction with shipboard, airborne, and land-based gravity measurements for the continental regions. The ADGRAV compilation provided an important new tool to the Antarctic Earth science community, from the geologist needing to place field observations in a regional context to the seismologist studying continental scale mantle structure.

  • West Antarctic Ice Sheet Airborne Gravimetry 
    This project was in collaboration with the Institute for Geophysics of the University of Texas at Austin. Airborne geophysical surveys within this program were carried out by the Support Office for Aerogeophysical Research (SOAR), a National Science Foundation facility of the Office of Polar Programs located at the University of Texas. Funding for this project was provided by the US National Science Foundation.
