Heading out to Sea in East Antarctica! Check out the Totten Glacier System expedition.
PolarTREC teacher Glenn Clark will be aboard the RV Palmer studying the remote Totten Glacier System in East Antarctica! Follow this epic journey through science!
This project will conduct a ship-based marine geologic and geophysical survey of the region, combined with a physical oceanographic study. The results are expected to add to our understanding of the oceanographic and glacial system and its potentially sensitive response to environmental change. This endeavor will complement studies of other Antarctic ice shelves, oceanographic studies near the Antarctic Peninsula, and ongoing development of ice sheet and other ocean models.
Follow through journals, ask questions, and connect to Antarctica with the expedition!
