The Polar Geophysics Group (PGG) is involved in airborne geophysical campaigns at both poles in collaboration with the National Science Foundation, NASA , the New York Air National Guard, and several international partners. Radar, lidar, gravity and magnetic data are used to explore ice sheet morphology and processes as well as the geological setting of these regions.
Centers, Projects & Initiatives
The Ice Sheets at both poles are changing - shrinking at increasing rates - rates that are faster than was ever expected by scientists.
Scientists from several nations are working together to launch a flagship program to explore a major mountain range buried by a large continental ice sheet and bounded by numerous subglacial lakes.
Using geophysical instruments, GAMBIT will peal back more than 600 meters of ice to explore the last hidden mountain range on Earth.
