      The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has worked in Antarctica for nearly 50 years, starting in with geophysical and geologic surveys and in with topographic mapping. Today the USGS also does marine, airborne, and satellite studies, as well as mapping and coring of the ice sheet, as part of the U.S. Antarctic Program. USGS scientific leadership is a cornerstone for international. The International Geophysical Year (IGY) was proposed by the international scientific community as a comprehensive global study of geophysical phenomena and their relationships with solar activity. It aimed to make wide-spread, simultaneous and intensive observations of a range of geophysical phenomena, using the latest instrumentation, rocket.

About this book. Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Antarctic Research Series, Volume 9. Since the beginning of the International Geophysical Year Ina new phase of scientific exploration has turned Antarctica into a unique laboratory.

Earlier concepts of Antarctica had been mainly preliminary, even confused, having been based upon intermittent. Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Antarctic Research Series, Volume This volume of the Antarctic Research Series represents an attempt to compile in one publication the remaining results of the extensive U.S.

This book is a collection of papers on various aspects of the scientific investigation and observation techniques of the polar regions at both temporary and permanent observatories.

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Antarctic Research Series, Volume By the end of the s the Ross Ice Shelf was already one of the better explored regions in Antarctica, yet glaciological and geophysical measurements. Show all.

Sixty articles arranged in eight thematic sections refer to most recent geological and geophysical results of Antarctic research. The Precambrian of the East Antarctic shield and its geological histor. Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Antarctic Research Series, Volume 2.

Glaciology, now broadly defined as the study of ice in all forms, is often regarded as a some what esoteric subject, though it takes little thought to dispel the notion. 19 volumes, An authoritative outlet for biological and physical research conducted in Antarctica.

The series was designed to complement Antarctic field work, much of which consists of cooperative, interdisciplinary projects.

A regional positive Bouguer anomaly (0 to +50 mGal), the width of the rift, extends from the Ross Sea continental shelf throughout the Ross Embayment and Byrd Subglacial Basin area of the West Antarctic rift system and indicates that the Moho is approximately 20 km deep tied to the seismic results (probably coincident with the top of the asthenosphere) rather than the 30 km reported in earlier by: The bottom water characteristics of the southeast Indian Ocean and southwest Pacific Ocean reveal northward transfer of cold water across the mid‐ocean ridge at.

Expendable bathythermograph, wind, and sea surface temperature data collected along 12 crossings of the Drake Passage were analyzed to describe variations in the structure of the antarctic polar frontal. Soviet studies in the Arctic and the Antarctic from the 's to the present are reviewed, and future prospects of such studies are assessed.

Particular attention is given to S.M. Mansurov's Antarctic investigations and to the Geomagnetic Meridian project. Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Special Publications Series. Tectonic, Climatic, and Cryospheric Evolution of the Antarctic Peninsula presents the analysis of data collected during the SHALDRIL program, which sampled the most complete Cenozoic stratigraphic section in the Antarctic Peninsula.

It marked the beginning of a new era of scientific discovery at a time when many innovative technologies were appearing. In Deep Freeze, Dian Olson Belanger tells the story of the pioneers who built viable communities, made vital scientific discoveries, and established Antarctica as a continent dedicated to peace and the pursuit of science, decades after the first explorers planted flags in the ice.
