Project One GPS on RIS Medium

Field Update - Proejct 1 - Ross Ice Shelf

1 January 2020

Event number K045

A team from Victoria University of Wellington successfully deployed two GPS Stations on the front of the Ross Ice Shelf at Coulman High. These permanent stations will investigate how fast the ice is moving and how this flow pattern is slowing and accelerating. The initial plan was for five stations, but weather delays only allowed the team to access two sites this season.
