Center for Geophysical Studies of Ice and Climate

Type: User Resource

Summary: CEGSIC (Center for Geophysical Studies of Ice and Climate) is a research group based in the Physics Department at St. Olaf College. Our main goal is to understand the response of the world's ice masses to global change. More specifically, we utilize the tools of ice-penetrating radar and satellite imagery to study the dynamics and evolution of glaciers and ice sheets in various parts of the world.

GBASE: GeomicroBiology of Antarctic Subglacial Environments

Type: User Resource

Summary: The GBASE project (GeomicroBiology of Antarctic Subglacial Environments) is one of three research components of the WISSARD (Whillans Ice Stream Subglacial Access Research Drilling) integrative initiative that is being funded by the Antarctic Integrated System Science Program of the National Science Foundations's Office of Polar Programs, Antarctic Division. GBASE will examine distinct, but hydrologically related, subglacial environments using a combination of biogeochemical/ genomic measurement

LISSARD: Lake and Ice Stream Subglacial Access Research Drilling

Type: User Resource

Summary: The LISSARD project (Lake and Ice Stream Subglacial Access Research Drilling) is one of three research components of the WISSARD integrative initiative (Whillans Ice Stream Subglacial Access Research Drilling) that is being funded by the Antarctic Integrated System Science Program of NSF’s Office of Polar Programs, Antarctic Division. LISSARD focuses on the role of active subglacial lakes in determining how fast the West Antarctic ice sheet loses mass to the global ocean and influences global se

RAGES: Robotics Access to Grounding-zones for Exploration and Science

Type: User Resource

Summary: As one of three components of WISSARD (Whillans Ice Stream Subglacial Access Research Drilling), RAGES (Robotic Access to Grounding-zones for Exploration and Science) research concentrates on the stability of the fast flowing Whillans Ice Stream grounding zone. A grounding zone is an area where the ice, ocean waters and sea floor interact; where the ice is being melted by or is freezing seawater, and where debris below and in the ice and streams flowing under the ice are released and discharge t

Whillans Ice Stream Subglacial Access Research Drilling (WISSARD)

Type: User Resource

Summary: The Whillans Ice Stream Subglacial Access Research Drilling (WISSARD) project is a 6-year (2009-2015) initiative focused on the hydrological continuum beneath the Whillans Ice Stream in glaciological, microbiological, geochemical, and oceanographic contexts.
